Mind and Body

As we go through life it is important that we stay active both mentally and physically.  In most cities there are things that cost very little or even some things that are free so cost should not be a huge concern when finding actives. The Amon Carter Museum of American Art in Ft.Worth, Texas is a world class museum known throughout the world. They always have their permanent collection free to the public.


This summer they are having a special showing that is free.


The special exhibition is ROMARE BEARDEN A Black Odyssey. It is truly amazing.

The museum offers free guided tours for this exhibit, headphones or you can download the app for the exhibition on your smartphone. You can’t take pictures of the special exhibitions, but you can take them of their permanent collection.


When leaving you will be given a card informing you of the special exhibition at the Arlington Museum of Art. There is a small admission charge, but it is far less than the cost of a movie. 



As women of a certain age we need to expand our minds and do something different.  There are so many things that are on my I’m gonna do” list that I have not done yet, but I can cross zip lining off.

Beaumont Ranch offers a variety of zip lines, and we did them all. There is a cost, but we used a Groupon.





Take care of your mind and body. Remember “thisisyourbestyear”.

This is my best year ever, and it can be yours too. When I turned 40, I thought it was the end of life as I knew it. When I turned 50, I knew it was the end. It was the end, the end of that year--nothing more and nothing less. I've retired, gone to another career, started a business, and have kept writing. I've taken classes including glass blowing, swing dancing and so much more. I'm making each year, my best year.
