What can YOU say in six sentences?
When someone asked me how my life had changed since I have been alone, I thought hard and long. What am I now doing that I was not doing before- and more important, what does that say about me? Oh, I still cook my meals, haven’t resorted to frozen meals, except occasionally; I have not become a slob, since the house stays relatively clean and organized. Oh, but I don’t make up my bed every morning anymore! But I do read French books now as well as English ones; I participate in more outdoor activities, such as hiking, kayaking and biking; I have slowly begun writing, if only to resume my blog, and that took me a year to get started again. I guess I am basically an organized person who cherishes my French roots more than ever and feel more comfortable now with them. It also means I have realized how debilitating age can make a person so I’m struggling to stay healthy and fit as long as possible. There are other changes too- like talking to myself (though not arguing) and choking up at random moments of grief. Life has changed but I have simply come to emphasize different parts of my psyche.
