Staying Alive!

The statement pretty sums up what this website is all about. Staying alive. I believe we stay alive at our age by going out and looking at the world much like we did when we were young but to do it now through the eyes of wisdom and experience.

We all know most of the journey has been walked and there’s not as many miles more to go before the trail comes to an end.

So, stay alive. Live the day. Love the moments. Embrace making fresh memories of places old and new with friends young and old.

That’s what this website is about. 

So come visit, enjoy, share your stories and experiences, and live.

Words From A Wise Woman

‘You start dying slowly’

You start dying slowly
If you do not travel,
If you do not read,
If you do not listen to the sounds of life,
If you do not appreciate yourself.

You start dying slowly
When you kill your self-esteem;
When you do not let others help you.

You start dying slowly
If you become a slave of your habits,
Walking everyday on the same paths…
If you do not change your routine,
If you do not wear different colors
Or you do not speak to those you don’t know.

You start dying slowly
If you avoid to feel passion
And their turbulent emotions;
Those which make your eyes glisten
And your heart beat fast.

You start dying slowly
If you do not change your life when you are not satisfied with your job, or with your love,
If you do not risk what is safe for the uncertain,
If you do not go after a dream,
If you do not allow yourself,
At least once in your lifetime,
To run away from sensible advice…
