Well, the time has come to move to Arizona. During the first week of January Suzanne and I will have sold our home in California and moved to Sun City, AZ. We will miss the ocean and our friends but we’ll keep the old friends and perhaps find new ones.
This year, 2018, has been stressful with the death of family members, retiring from jobs we have both held for 35 years, and clearing out over 35 years of accumulated “must have” items. Now we look at most of the “stuff” we could not live without and find it freeing to either throw it away, sell it or donate it to charity.
I have found material possessions, unless they are part of a creative activity or needed for comfortable living are detrimental to a clean and wholesome state of mind.
