"So here I am, about six weeks since my last post. The cohousing group at Placitas, NM, was not good for me or for them. In my typical naive way I had thought there weren't hidden agendas--and there were. It was a difficult process for me,…"
"Cee, I'm glad to connect with you again. We share similarities in this idea of moving. I have been very undecided, then decided, then undecided, and so forth. (I think you know how it goes!) I looked at every option I could find and each looked…"
"Good afternoon! I am delighted that your moves have been going well. I got stressed by how little progress I seemed to be making myself, and then I lost track of how to find this topic. I suppose if I used Facebook frequently I would perceive a…"
"It seems the classic "between a rock and a hard place" dilemma. I've been thinking the last few days that I need to pay more attention to online sources of friends--like WV. At least those connections could go anywhere with me.
"I read a book recently, "Going Solo: The extraordinary rise and surprising appeal of living alone." Reading it was good for me as it helped me realize my own experience is not unique. Especially in the sections about those of us over 55,…"
"I've not been back to WV much in the last year or more--because I've been occupied with activities around the decision about moving or not. Today I just "happened" back to this specific discussion. What a surprise! I have read…"
"Heather, I'll be in Flagstaff tomorrow evening. Cynthia & I are planning to have dinner together. Would you like to join us? I sent you a friend request & will recheck the site a bit later to see if you've answered, then we can…"
"Good morning, Cynthia! I usually drive through Flagstaff as I travel between Yuma & ABQ so I may well take you up on that offer in October. I have a Facebook page, but go to it only once or twice a year: virtual connection for me places way…"
"I'm heading to northern New Mexico on the 14th and will stay until the 24th. This is my first trip to actually explore a place I think I would like to live. I'm both excited and scared. :-)
The map isn't working, at least on my iPad,…"
"It did rain heavily this afternoon, katpilot, in northern NM. I'm sitting outdoors right now with a light breeze, distant thunder & lightening, and such a fresh feeling in the air!
For those of you who are thinking of traveling, you can…"
"I want to comment on two things: traveling alone and where I live. To start with the last, I live in Yuma, AZ. It's a bit cooler there than in the Phoenix/Scottsdale/Mesa area because we have much less concrete and asphalt to hold the heat day…"
"Tomorrow is our wedding anniversary. I don't understand it because we often forgot to celebrate our anniversary when he was alive--and that was okay--but it now is one of the most difficult days for me to face. I'm lonely, testy with…"
"To all of you,
I, too, have kept up with the posts here, reading all your words and wanting to respond, yet not knowing just what I would say. My own roller coaster continues, but most of my experiences, thoughts, and feelings are on the…"
