Greetings from Chile!

Patricia, Age 81

Hello, I am an 81-year-old woman, in good health (with a few exceptions, normal like car with a lot of miles).
Married, twice, two sons, two grandchildren. I live in Chile, by the sea side, a small place called Maitencillo, 60 kms from Valparaiso…this place is probably more famous.

I have two dogs, a male and a female, one black one white. Worked my whole life and lived in Santiago, and owned this house where we spent our weekends.

Traveled a lot, being to the USA several times, I have a brother who lives there. In general, looking back, I have enjoyed my life, laughed a lot, something I still do.
I love reading, watch the sea side while we have a cup of coffee on Saturdays,(coffee shops only open on weekends). This place is flooded with people on long weekends and summer, and the peace returns.

Wish you all lots of fun, smiles, laughter and friedship, from a very very far away place.
Patricia

    Hi Patricia. Thank you for telling us a bit of your life. It sounds like you have developed a peace, grace and humor as your life companions. It is lovely to meet you. I live in Florence, Italy, also a long way away.

    Your life sounds like heaven. Drinking coffee by the seaside is something I would love to do (except with tea). Keep living your life.

    To Patricia
    What a wonderful letter. Wish
    we could be
    Pen pals. Our lives are very similar.
    I live 10 minutes from the ocean.
    Very Seasonal area.
    I have worked since age 13 and still am working 71 yrs old. I have 2 dogs. They are my real buddies. My car has 110,000
    Miles.
    Looking back I have laughed and cried.
    All in all I am doing well and take one day at a time and meditate a lot. Works for me. Another similarity I am Patricia.

    Patricia, I totally agree on the joys of small rituals. A cup of coffee by the sea sounds wonderful. My husband and I share a leisurely cup each morning while catching up on the news. Not as scenic perhaps, but since he makes it, I have no complaints.

    I hope that life treats you well and that we hear from you again.
