Being “forced” to think in a different direction (no, there is no one behind me with a whip – I checked) I can be a little more creative and still accomplish my mission. My mission is partially just to express myself – sort of like screaming into the wind; that’s the really selfish part. Another part is have a record of who I am (or was down the road). The last part is to share my adventures and give a little travel advice to older people.
The first advice is do it now, tomorrow may be too late.
So that said I am happy with Old Not Dead as a blog name.
As for the who I am I will develop that and over the short run – I have 4 grandchildren and I want to leave a record so they will know me better than just a visit here and there. I did not know either of my grandfathers. I knew only one grandmother but the other and my grandfathers died before I was born and neither parent ever talked about any of them. That is sad.
