OKay!!! So two "oldsters" from Portland recently made a break from their home base of over 35 years, and took off to Mazatlan, Mexico, where the living is easy.( and priced for real people!) It wasn't a snap getting here but we've each taken care of our health over the years, and felt up for the challenge.We drove the 2400 miles in a packed van with a dog and a full tank of determination to carve out a new path.That was the catalyst..the hope and trust that we were able to change, even at 73 and 74 years old.... THAT AND the realization that the news is the news and will always be filled with fractured dreams for those of us who want to move forward in peace and prosperity for one and all. I'm still of course sad and angry about the direction we are going in US,but sacrificing our own lives wouldn't solve anything. We know that our well being is our own doing and that we can step out of the box for another turn at living with less stress. So far, the rewards have been tremendous...color, light, laughter, music, and beauty do heal the soul for one and all. Care to jump in?
