Welcome! Where to begin???
My name is Andrea. I live in a small town in the southeast corner of British Columbia in Canada. I live with a 14 year old orange cat...actually I am STAFF to a 14 year old orange cat whom I was selected by nearly three years ago. We live in a lovely flat on the ground floor which makes it cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
I'm not going to be to terribly specific as I want to keep things as universal an unidentifiable as possible, except in certain circumstances.
Previously I had a blog that was about my life, and after a few years it became a chore to write, so I decided to close it down.
There will not be any social media links to this website as my long range plan is to use this as my primary communication with the world. I'm finding social media, especially FB is something that has become a divisive battlefield. I keep my account in order to stay in touch with overseas family.
I enjoy IG much more because it's not as interactive.
So, what is this site going to be about?
Honestly, I'm not sure at this point and it will likely change.
It will be a place for "blue sky thinking" about my future, retirement (5 years and 9 months but whose counting) and things like that.
It will be a place for unvarnished honesty about me and how I see the world.
There will be conversations with my cat.
There will be mood music.
There will rantings and ravings and hopes and dreams and a strong desire to travel and see things. The big trips will come after retirement, but in the meantime there will be days when I get in my car, called Hope, and meander down a back road.
At some point I'll share the story of why this blog is called Vaguely Meandering, but until then, I leave you with this...
I like myself more now, at 54, then I have at any other time in my life. And that's saying something. I'm working towards loving myself. That's going to be a longer journey. This blog isn't written for an audience, but rather, to send my thoughts out there and see what happens. If I set an intention, will it be heard? If I share a prayer, will it be understood? If I share a sermon, will it be read?
As I said, I'm not sure where this is going, but if you want to come along, I'd be glad to have you.
