Every now and then Penelope and I have the conversation about where we want to eventually move to and settle down. Most of the time I start the conversation and to be fair, I tend to be wishy washy about where I would like to live. Somedays I want to live here somedays I want to live their or the other place. There is however one common theme with my choice of home, in that I would like a little more land and have some seclusion from neighbors. Now I am not talking about a small cabin in the rocky mountains, but certainly an acre or two with my nearest neighbor a football field or so away would be great. Penelopes’ argument is one that the seclusion is too quiet and what about if someone wants to do harm to us living in the sticks breeds that she says. I myself dont discount that argument, but flood lights, dogs and shotguns are usually a great deterrent to most folks lurking around. Penelope grew up in the city and likes the close knit community i.e. Neighbor right there. I can see that and it does make sense, but I just think the older you get the more peace and quiet you have and need. For me, real peace and serenity is living a quiet life with my penelope away from the hussle and bussle of the city, sitting on the porch and talking about what if we were filthy rich what would we do…..Thankfully we dont have to make a moving decsion now and can put it off for the time being….just a quick life thought…

While taking much needed time off to convalesce the pace of life has decreased considerably. The only time I have left the ranch was to walk to the local store to get a candy bar, even then I took 4 breaks. Some days are better then others. The surgical scars seem to be healing quickly, the only thing I worry about is the shortness of breath I have. Poppin the theatre lights on everyday and reading the daily times right now are the daily highlights until Penelope comes homes from work, that is when my day starts. I have a follow up medical appointment this week and this about it for what I have on the horizon. This might be a good life if I was alot older and retired but I am a little too young to be living like this. The only good thing that can be said for walking around the ranch during the day is how quiet and peaceful it is. When I am here by myself it is the perfect atmosphere for effective healing and great sunshine therapy…Just a quick life moving thought.
It has always amazed me that countries and their leaders can never seem to sit down in the same place and figure out how to live together peacefully. There always seems to be that cultural difference beit religion or political party or what have you that stops it. But yet people can look at each other’s blog anywhere in the world and translate the language and learn to understand them as people. What motivates them, their likes, dislikes, how they feel about the god they worship and why. I love taking a few minutes and day, going through my links and seeing how my blog friends in India and the Philipines are faring this day. I have not figured all the languages but I take a little while each day and study it. So hopefully one day I can read Hindi and Tagalog….I know its simple a thought but what about if Dr Mannohan, Ali Khamenei and Barrack Obama opened a blog and read blog from each others countries..hmmm just a quick cultural thought
