In the beginning

the desire to blog has been in my spirit for some time now.  And recently I read that if you don't adhere to the proddings from that 'still small voice' then that window just might close and the gifts could be lost.  Well although I heard that voice several months ago, it did continue to nag me;  I am thankful for that becausse here I am!!

so who am I and what am I doing and what is LAFF?

Life After the Forties and the Fifties (LAFF) is the name given to me by the still small voice.  I had a milestone birthday this year, and although I don't look OR feel this milestone, here I am.  (I am certain you have figured out what that milestone is by now.)

i want to use this platform to share thoughts and feelings I am experiencing.  Perhaps I am still in awe about my age, perhaps I am continuing to become that writer I feel is inside me.  I don't know what it is, but here I am!!  I know I will not be posting everyday, but I do hope you will return from time to time.  It has taken over a week to write these few paragraphs and to publish.

i am eager to 'publish' - man, that word 'publish' is so powerful to me.  So I have described LAFF, and next time I will tell you more about me.


  1. Love it!!!! And welcome, my darling. Set your thoughts free!!! Love you.

  2. OK, set both your blogs up as RSS feeds so now I'll be notified as soon as you update. LOL, 'course that doesn't mean I'll read them as soon as they appear, but at least I'll have a reminder that they're waiting for me. So love that you're doing this. Something I've thought of doing, too. - Brenda
