May Their Love Grow + Reading List + President Elected

May Their Love Grow + Reading List + President Elected

Great to have you here, and thank you for your time today.

I hope you had a nice week and are ready for some R&R. 

"The universe is made of stories, not of atoms." - Muriel Rukeyser.

This week had lots of family from away showing up to visit. And laughter and tears were shared by many. COVID has kept too many people apart for too long. 

Old Home Week is officially over this evening, but it was great to have the Gold Cup and Saucer Parade celebrate its 60th year after taking two years away, thanks to the pandemic. 

See a few photos here; thank you, CBC. 

Also, thank you to Sara Fraser of CBC for this beautiful story of wedding bliss at the midway. 

The best thing to hold onto in life is each other.' ~ Audrey Hepburn

Jeffery MacDonald and Katelyn Waite (now MacDonald) of Long Creek had been engaged for three years but delayed their wedding because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Katrina Kuzminer, their photographer, took many beautiful photos and said, “as soon as Jeff lifted Katelyn up to kiss her ... 400 people were clapping and cheering. It was surreal.”

Read the story and see some of their photos here. 

"Love is friendship that has caught fire. It is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses." ~ Ann Landers

May their love grow and grow and grow. 

Summer Reading. 

"There is a temperate zone in the mind, between luxurious indolence and exacting work, and it is to this region, just between laziness and labour, that summer reading belongs." ~ Henry Ward Beecher

So far, this summer's completed fiction reading includes, No Man’s Land by David Balducci and The Alice Network by Kate Quinn. In non-fiction, I finished On Writing by Stephen King.

In the middle of and hope to finish this weekend, Stephen Kings, The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon. 

On the non-fiction list, I finished On Writing by Stephen King and started Timothy Keller's Making Sense of God. I just cracked the covers on The Interpretation of Cultures by Clifford Geertz and Dimensions of the Sacred. Not sure where these heavy lifts will take me.

What are you reading these days? 

I just signed up for The Seniors College of Prince Edward Island provides learning opportunities for adults 50 and over in Queens, Prince, and Kings Counties!

In three semesters from October to May, enjoy membership benefits and our affiliation with the University of Prince Edward Island. Here is the course list, and I am looking forward to signing up for a few. 

"Intellectual growth should commence at birth and cease only at death." ~ Albert Einstein

I have been listening to a lot of peaceful music on Spotify this week. 

I feel the video below speaks to this quote. 

“To be whole. To be complete. Wildness reminds us what it means to be human, what we are connected to rather than what we are separate from.” Terry Tempest Williams

81-year-old surprises care home with a note-perfect rendition of 'Unchained Melody.'

On that note, I wish you unchained love and invite you to join me in a little place in Mexico below that would be a great spot to share a cup of tea. 

We must never stop dreaming. Dreams provide nourishment for the soul, just as a meal does for the body. ~ Paulo Coelho

You can watch the video posted by the real estate agent here. Turn off the sound and just watch. 

I started a newsletter called A Bunch of Good Things—a place for positivity and encouragement. If you have not already signed up, please do so here

Have a wonderful weekend. 

With Love from Prince Edward Island

Love both of your blogs, Bruce. I live far, far away from you, but my own “senior” learning program has brought more joy to my retirement than I ever imagined. I knew I would not be bored after leaving paid work, but the new friends and surprising new interests of a well run lifelong learning program are a true blessing. Best wishes!

I had to turn off the real estate program as it finished up. I could not take looking at other, expensive property. That house and its surrounds were amazing. The Bible tells me to not be “envious”, so I turned away from the temptation. That house, was so open, so stunningly beautiful, even down to that adorable ant piece decorating one of the rooms. This has been a joyful journey.
I miss knowing that you are not running around and taking care of matters in the PEI Preserve Co. And I hope and pray that retirement is working well for you. The listing of classes sound amazing. Makes me want to look into the Senior courses at CSULB. I’ve enjoyed it in the past, and need to get back into it!
Blessings to you Bruce.
