Life Is A Journey


50 years: here's a time when you have to separate yourself from what other people expect of you, and do what you love. Because if you find yourself 50 years old and you aren't doing what you love, then what's the point? ~ Jim Carrey

This photo is from a building on Ledoux street in Taos. I am here celebrating the big 50! Today is the start of my next half of my journey. Come along, it should be interesting.

May I be the first to wish you happy birthday. The 50s was my BEST decade. (The 60s hasn't been too bad either.) Hope it's the same for you!

Happy birthday, Randy!!! May you run wild like those horses (just today) and like Bird said... don't trip.

The great thing about birthdays is that it gives us a chance to reflect on our goals and life's dreams.

Best to you!
Genie
