Now that Iím in my middle 50s I worry that I havenít done enough in my life to meet my own expectations of what my life should have been. But then I realize that I have a solid career, am a private pilot, and am currently enjoying life in the desert southwest with my husband of well over 25 years with men we call family.

I am currently sitting on our roof watching another thunderstorm roll in during this yearís monsoon. Itís awe inspiring.

And then I realize my life is more than I imagined as a kid in Central New York.

And thereís zoo much more to come.
