I am living in Germany; I absolutely love it. I love the food, the people, their public transportation, their wildlife. Today I am sitting in my living room looking at the trees sway in the wind; it is magical. I want to go out for a walk; but I am enjoying just sitting here on my sofa with my cranberry juice tea.
Life is short; and I want to live as long as I can. I remember reading in the Bible that people would live for 500 years or something ridiculous. I remember the movie, “The Green Mile”. Tom Hanks’s character lived much longer than he wanted to. He outlived so many women that he loved as well as friends. I think that after losing so many people in my life; I would rather have a shorter life. Not that I want to die; it just hurts to have those people that I love die. I do not think my heart is strong enough for it; at least not at this point.
So; here in Germany, I am hanging out with Boo (the Bulldog). She is almost 9 years old; almost her expiration date, but she is as lively as ever. She watches the wildlife outside and barks; and I encourage it. I love her so very much and losing her may be the death of me; but I will be with her until the end!
