Friendships Born of Passions

A year and a half ago I started this blog in anticipation of the arrival of my granddaughter Lilu. Kids are special- especially the ones you don't get to see very often.

In the old days, people used to share their inner thoughts and life observations with future generations in diaries and "personal papers". This, I guess, has become my diary.

Whether or not anyone but myself will read it and find it interesting, I noticed that there is a common thread running through these virtual pages- I have turned a corner and become focused on positive passions.

I am a twice-divorced single mom getting over old physical ills that are being replaced by new ones (hat tip to both rotator cuffs and diabetes) while the economy is tanking, my favorite football teams are losing and my fellow Baha'is are being persecuted literally to death because they believe God said the world is a neighborhood and we are all neighbors... these are positive?

Oh yeah.

Every one of these things- plus my passionate love - for family, friends, fish, cats, technology, dogs, sports, service, community, world peace, good food, travel, music, art, photography... the list is endless... has brought me together with a world full of wonderful people.

Every interest brings an "ohana" of other interested (and interesting) people. People  striving for excellence and people willing to acknowledge and reciprocate kindness.

I think this is my childhood dream of "belonging" finally fulfilled.

It happened when I realized all the people of the world are my ohana.

GO WARRIORS!  HAIL TO THE REDSKINS!  (I couldn't resist).

And who would have ever guessed that I'd be friends with the very, very awesome Washington Redskins sports writers, bloggers and broadcasters!?!

hmmm. I heard on ESPN that there is talk that Gruden will be the next Redskins coach. Just talk, mind you. If that ever happens, I wonder what will happen to Colt.

Lots of good things on your blog, Liz. Keep it up!

Miz Liz,

You forgot "Ambassador of Aloha" in your description of yourself. Glad I got to know you recently. I can see that you are of those people who will not be soon forgotten once someone has met you.

Have a great day and keep up the good work.
