These are the thoughts and observations of me — a woman of a certain age. (Oh, my, God, I'm 60!) I'm single. I'm successful enough (independent, self supporting). I live in the burbs and work in the city (Chicago, the best city in the world). I'm an aunt, a friend and a colleague. I feel that voices like mine are rather underrepresented online or in print. So here I am. If my musings resonate with you, please visit my blog again sometime.

August Happiness Challenge -- Day 6
Today's Happiness is blue skies. It was so clear, so blue. Every time I looked at it, all day, wherever I was. As I was walking to the train this morning, it highlighted the green of the trees pressing against it. Then, when I got to the office, I had a hard time tearing my eyes away from the window, where I could see the metal and steel skyscrapers reaching up into it, and the Lake's own shade of blue bumping up against it. My heart felt a little fuller, every time I looked up today.
