Hello Tracy! Ohhhh, I could feel the "beach anticipation" while reading your comment ... I can remember as we neared the water I would be scanning the sky daring any clouds to appear! Isn't it funny how we reach a point in youth where we start looking at "being grown up" as true liberation and then, bam! we're adults and see just how liberated we were in our youth! Tracy, thank you for your comment!! Hugs and love being sent your way! Peppy

Dear Peppy, First - I loved, loved the picture of you and CJ. It is so evocative of our generation (I think we are all about 25, right?) But it so beautifully shows the pure joy of being young. I can remember my heart beating faster in my chest as we approached the beach or the swimming pool. The thrill of your feet hitting the water - it was almost unbearably wonderful. We didn't think about what we were wearing or how we looked. Then the teenage years came and while the fun was still there - self consciousness crept in - "how do I look?" "Will I pass, will someone make a remark - good or bad?". Being comfortable in your own skin is complicated. I truly enjoyed your self analysis and your willingness to share your journey - it always rings true. Love, Tracy

Hello Sonia, Your comment about my age made me laugh ...when you said my age was news to you I thought you were about to tell me you always thought I was the oldest! Sonia, thank you for your kind expressions ~ you have such a lovely disposition and I appreciate how you look beyond the obvious because you anticipate gems that must, surely, be tucked underneath the surface. Love you, too! Peppy

Dear Peppy, Your blog appeared on my Pinterest feed. Way cool! I enjoyed your piece on candid mental realities. Your closing comments regarding promptly changing the disposition of the 'mental quagmire' was inspirational. After all we are stuck with ourselves so we better make the best of it. By the way, your age is news to me; last I heard you were 25 due to slight dyslexia. Lol. Love you!

Hello dear Monica, I love it when you stop by ~ reading your comment made me think about all the things I loved doing as a kid ... I was a tomboy and was always on my bike, climbing trees, having cartwheel races, swimming, etc. I love how you expressed that time of life: "youth seems to be the only time that how we feel on the inside matches the joy we readily express on the outside - effortlessly"! Beautifully said, dear friend! Love ya! Peppy

Hello Peppy! Wonderful post! LOVE the picture. Youth seems to be the only time that how we feel on the inside matches the joy we readily express on the outside - effortlessly. As we get older, we have to work harder to do that don't we? I love things that make me feel like a kid again - roasting marshmallows, riding my bike - because it takes me back to a time when all I worried about was the next FUN thing not where that new gray hair or wrinkle came from! Thanks for the reminder to be truly young at heart! Love you!

Hello Tom, Thank you so much for your ever-so-kind comments! I wish I could say I made up the "Chubby Hubby"(chunks of pretzels, chocolate fudge, & peanut butter in a vanilla ice-cream base), unfortunately, or dare I say, fortunately, it has been discontinued ... now Gene is even feeling "comfortable in his own skin" - I say with a wink.hehe I hope you and Lorraine are doing well and Tom, thank you for stopping by the blog and taking the time to leave such encouraging comments! Peppy

Love this piece. Very introspective and inspirational. Is there really a Ben and Jerry's "Chubby Hubby", or were you just making that up? I have never seen that flavor! Being friends. You always seem to come up with a few lines of pure brain candy prose. The ones I admire in this piece are: "my thoughts are wading through old emotional sludge", "that can ruin a good mood faster than my Gene can make a quart of Ben and Jerry’s Chubby Hubby or Chunky Monkey disappear", and "What I miss about that kid has nothing to do with a number and everything to do with comfort."

"Fresh squeezed. With Lillet blanc. And vodka?? " I don't drink enough to know what that is, but I want one! I also learned another word from one of your other blogs. Kitshy. Quit sending me to the dictionary! Love your blogs.
