Today marks the 10th Anniversary
of this newsletter!
THANKS to all of you, my readers of many years. Your feedback has been and continues to be heartwarming and appreciated.
The answer is
sailboat. If you don't understand the answer you'll have to read the May newsletter, and then you'll know what the answer means. Yet, the answer may surprise you. Rest assured there was a reason and, hopefully, good logic behind the decision.
Those of you who have been loyal readers will remember Cameron's Corner. Cameron is my grandson who always poked fun at what I wrote. He's still teaching me and poking me. His desire to sail is one of the reasons for the sailboat.
There is another grandson and granddaughter, and they both poke fun at me also. Plus, they are looking forward to learning how to sail.
Today I start my sabbatical
Why stop now? It's time, and time is the greatest asset we have. I have much to accomplish and look forward to, and I hope you do also.
What else will I do? Where will I go?
There is a saying, "Don't tell the world what you are going to do, show them."
Over time we will see each others accomplishments, growths, and changes. Ideally, we'll celebrate each other.
It's time, and the time is now. The time is now to make the time you need to do the things you want to do and should do. So, start now, right here, right now, today.

Today reminds me of what T S Eliot wrote in
the 4 Quartets.
In the third. Quartet:
In my beginning is my end
In my end is my beginning . . .
In the fourth quartet, called Little Gidding, he wrote
What we call the beginning is often the end
And to make an end is to make a beginning.
The end is where we start from...
We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
