Just had a moment to reflect about today’s activity.  I had the opportunity to talk with my loving husband, e-mailed with my children, sent a text to my granddaughter, completed a project that I have been working on for a few weeks and spent some time working on my novel.

I imagine that it was a pretty successful day.  If all my days and weeks are this busy, and I hope that they are, then I may end up accomplishing some of the items on my “to do” list.  Sometimes my life seems complicated and tangled with undoable projects.  However, I have realized that if I concentrate on talking with my loved ones and putting a priority on the things which mean the most to me, then the other little items in life seem to take care of themselves.

I was a sunshine baby – I spent a good part of the first twelve years of my life in Ceylon as it was called before, Malta and South Africa travelling with our father who was in the Royal Navy. I was brown most of time and in those days you might have got a bit of baby lotion on your skin after sun and we did wear hats, but there were no over the counter sun blocks as such.

At various other times in my life I have lived in sunnier climates including in Spain and I can definitely notice the difference in my health, energy levels and mental well being when I have shorter winters and more sunshine in my life.

When I lived in Ireland for five years back in the late 1990s, I…
