To Taste Life Twice. . .

"We write to taste life twice, in the moment and in the retrospect."  - Anais Nin"
Several times a year I look through my blog and ask myself, "Why do I write?"  The obvious answer is because I love writing and I love sharing our life with our family and friends.  Sometimes I do feel like quitting, but then think to myself, "I've put a lot of effort and time into this blog!  I can't quit!"  Mostly I write "to taste life twice".  I believe in an afterlife and heaven.  I believe when we die we're going on to the next phase of existence.  But I do so love my present life, and if writing about it means I get to live it twice, then I'll keep on writing!
