I have been given an amazing gift; the opportunity to change the direction of my life.  If you had the chance, what would you do?   While you ponder this, come with me as I decide the what, where and how of it.  What will the soundtrack be?  I have already begun my BIG ADVENTURE (BA for short), but I am going to retrace most of my steps to catch you up.

I’ll start with a brief recap of the events leading up to the BA. 

   2/14/12 Dear husband of 32 years calls from another state to scream “I want a divorce!” This may seem harsh, but it was actually in response to my abruptly terminating a pretty contentious argument by pressing the “off” button on my phone.  I’m sure you can picture all the pain, anger, sadness, relief, surprise, blah blah blah, so we’ll skip that.  This is about my new life, not about how I got here.

  3/16/12  The divorce is final.  Really, couldn’t the court have moved a tad slower so that it would be St Patrick’s Day?  I mean, it started on one Saint’s day, a little symmetry would be poetic, don’t you think?  We’ll just have to find poetry somewhere else.

As Part 1 of the BA comes to a close, I suggest you listen to Gaelic Storm’s version of “Scalliwag” – Oh goodie! I found the YouTube video with the lyrics.  Enjoy if you have a mind to:  
I almost forgot - your homework assignment is to dream big; what would you do if you could?  No, winning the Lottery is not possible.  Work with what you have.
