You have landed on the site for my two volumes of life journey musings, prompted by an unwelcome diagnosis of multiple sclerosis at 57.  Less about MS and more about accepting loss and moving on in life, the poetic contents of the two books cover a span of 10 years.

Musing Along the Way, Volumes 1 and 2

Then there was a pause…to write a book on another topic, Why Not Do What You Love?

Since 2011, the archived blogs speak to my reflections on the continuing journey of life… the expressions of my thoughts on the ups and downs of a life still in motion.  I am a woman, still healing, aging, and living into her final chapter of life.  The topics, now addressed in both poetry and prose, tend to deal with whatever has captured my attention along the way.

And life goes on.  Musing blog posts PRIOR to mid-2015 are archived here on this site.   (SINCE 2015, very occasional posts about what is beginning to matter to this now 78-year old woman are posted on my current anchor site (meetmarthajohnson.com)

Frankly, the first two volumes of Musings emerged organically.  I found myself reflecting in –surprise to me– poetry.   Scribblings stuffed in a file cabinet, with hindsight,  organized themselves for wider sharing.  Since that has been my pattern, I would guess that a look back at the 2009 –  2014 memories sparked by years of blog posts is now in order.  Is there a Musing III  to come?  We’ll see.

Enjoy getting a taste of this book by navigating through the menu at the top of the page.

I have always believed, and I still believe,
that whatever good or bad fortune may come our way,
we can always give it meaning and transform it into something of value.
