My Poetic Path

My journey…shared in poems, prose and photos.

Taking “NEVER GIVE UP” to a Whole New Level!


If you haven’t seen this video re: Diana Nyad’s amazing and triumphant swim and her realization of a 35 year dream, do click through.

This brought tears to my eyes, but in a good way.

I’m going to keep this one in mind, when I’m in need of some inspiration. Wow!

I guess 60 IS the new 40 after all. 😉
