Year Thirty-Six

Image
On the eve of my 37th birthday, I find myself thinking of Year 36.  Have I accomplished all that I desired? Am I happier this year than the last?  Have I inspired others to follow their passions as difficult as it may seem? During Year 36 ...have I given back to the world in the amount that I believed?  Have I lived the very best life that God has to offer ...an unlimited abundance of bliss, prosperity, opportunity and love?  Have I explored new continents, embraced unique people or relocated to an unimaginable location thousands of miles outside of my comfort? 
No  {I have so much more to accomplish}
Yes {I am thankful to be alive}
Hopefully

Good Bye, Sweet Year 36 
My time with you has definitely been adventurous!  Excited, I await Magnificent Year 37    ~ J.R. Randle, Year Thirty-Six

Writing from my pied a`terre window,  I've fallen in love with what surrounds me. These vivid images of inspiration I welcome within. The people ...the vehicles ...the food being sold.

I will soon be returning to Detroit as I am only here temporarily.
