"Good afternoon Slick. J just left for the week. I will see her next weekend, perhaps a little during the week. I will keep your intention with me for you. Some people can be comfortable being alone. I am not one of those people. And it sounds like…"
"Hi Slick, well, I don't know if I am a teacher . . . but I will share what I do. I keep my "intention" in my mind and I "send" it out to the Universe. By sending, I mean I place it "out there". I can't explain…"
"Slick, the purpose/goal of the universe (God) is to work with us in achieving our goals. If you send your desires out to the Universe for a companion . . . it will happen! J and I often joke about how my wife must have "stirred the pot" to…"
"Ya know Slick, you have some very good words. Becoming us . . . as an individual. In my own case I am still discovering who I am after four plus years . . . I may never achieve that goal. However, with someone in my life now (relationship, each of…"
"Hi Jim, I like your attitude . . . think like you are 50. I am 78 this year and think like I am 50. Though my mind and body sometimes have a disagreement. And as others have mentioned here, I have to consider my activities for physical consequences.…"

"Hi Jim, I am a little late in joining your thread. I stopped by my wife's grave site today of the way home from errands. In four years it hasn't gotten any easier. I am just waiting for my final date to be placed beside hers. As to her…"
"Hi Lissa, that sucks . . . a year and a half later? When my wife passed I never thought to contact the credit bureaus. Though I did close out her CC. Now the sad thing was that she had accrued points on her CC for travel, hotels, etc. Since my name…"
"Hi Don, That is great country. I assume you have a senior pass to all the National Parks? I got mine when I went to Acadia National Park in Maine. Did a bit of camping in the rain. Lobsters were great. My girlfriend and I almost broke up over the…"
"Hi Don, I don't know where you live, but the sun is shining here. But I did see a big bird with something in it's claws fly overhead. Temperatures are in the low 50s. BUT, I know we will pay for it later this month or next. Then again, I…"
