Wednesday Wit and Wisdom . . . . . . . .




I was in my late sixties when I made my first run, alone. Crossing one of the most beautiful lakes in northern California. Deep, sparkling water, tall green pines along the shoreline, a snow-capped sleeping volcano in the distance. Somehow, in these later years, I've become brave, adventurous. My heart pounds sometimes and I wonder if this the right thing for an aging heart. On that day, in the quietude of an early morning, I graduated from riding pillion behind my friend on her wave runner. I straddled my own bright red machine, checked my life jacket, looked across the pool of shimmering diamonds, and started my engine. . . . . . . . . . . 


  
Today I'm joining Linda Kay's WEDNESDAY WIT AND WISDOM
on her blog Senior Adventures.


I like the idea of a writing challenge.
Choose a photo - write a story, a poem, an observation.
Visit Linda Kay HERE for more stories. Perhaps add 
your own, after all we each have a story to tell.
