My little red tether is my anchor in running with my friends. A beautiful guide dog has been my tether/anchor in mobility and independence for 17 years: 1. Pantera 2. Cricket, and now my beautiful 3. Georgina (Georgie). A life of family and friends is my joy and anchor in life.

Midlife Celebration

These days I yearn to have as much time as possible to be active ... walking with Cricket, cycling, hiking, and yoga are some of my favorites. I refer to it as my 'midlife celebration'. Hoping the ability to be active and in good health continues for years to come. Today we enjoyed our 24-miler route. We were doing pretty good until the last few miles when it began to be a downpour. We were drenched!Later we hiked along the Bonneville Shoreline. Missy, our pug, joined us although she had to be carried for most of the way back.

Side note to my smile and wrinkles

They're NOT wrinkles. They're laugh lines--who wouldn't want those?! I loved Natalie's post, too--you do a mean cartwheel!

Oh be nice to Missy - she can't ever die remember?

I agree...those are called "laugh lines" not wrinkles. LOVED the pics of you guys doing cartwheels!
You truly inspire me to be more active!

Midlife celebration. . . .I like it.
Dan says I have discovered the fountain of youth. I also love Yoga and have recently added meditation ( 3 weeks now) I expect this softening of the face and the uplift at the corners of the face will erase tension and wrinkles. Patterns of holding.
Love, Susan
