MY NEW JOURNAL

HI EVERYONE!

I'M INVITING YOU OVER TO MY NEW JOURNAL, WHICH IS CALLED "MEMOIRS OF A WORLD TRAVELER."

I STARTED THE JOURNAL LAST NIGHT, AFTER HAVING DISCUISSED IT WITH JIMMY, MY HUSBAND.  HE APPROVED OF IT, AND EVEN ENCOURAGED ME TO WRITE IT...........

IT IS ABOUT AN EARLIER TIME IN MY LIFE, WHEN I WAS TRAVELING AROUND THE WORLD, EXTENSIVELY........I WANT TO WRITE IT DOWN NOW, BEFORE I FORGET TOO MANY OF THE FACTS, AS WE TEND TO FORGET THINGS AS TIME GOES ON...............SO, THE NEW JOURNAL IS REALLY MORE OF A "RECORD-KEEPING," ABOUT MY TRAVELS.......I AM HAPPY THAT JIMMY WILL NOW BE ABLE TO READ ABOUT WHERE I WENT, AND WHAT I DID DURING THOSE DAYS.......YOU MAY SAY, MY NEW JOURNAL IS SOMEWHAT OF A "GIFT" TO MY HUSBAND, AS IT IS ONLY FAIR THAT HE KNOW EVERY DETAIL OF WHERE I HAVE BEEN , AND WHAT I HAVE SEEN IN MY LIFE........

THE NEW JOURNAL MAY NOT BE FOR EVERYONE......MOST PEOPLE FIND IT BORING TO HEAR ABOUT THE TRAVELS OF OTHERS.........I HAVE TRIED TO MAKE IT MORE ON A PERSONAL LEVEL, AS I WAS MEETING MANY LOCAL PEOPLE, AND HAD MANY UNUSUAL AND CULTUAL EXPERIENCES........REALLY DIFFERENT THEN THE AVERAGE PERSON.....I WAS NOT ONLY THE TOURIIST, WITH A CAMERA HANGING AROUND MY NECK..........I WAS PART OF THE CULTURE, AND LOCAL PEOPLE........

IN MY NEW JOURNAL, YOU WILL SEE A DIFFERENT SIDE OF ME............YOU WILL SEE THAT THERE HAVE ALWAYS BEEN DIFFERENT SIDES TO ME..........MY WHOLE LIFE..........I HAVE ALWAYS FOUND LIFE TO BE A VERY, VERY INTERESTING JOURNEY....I HAVE ALWAYS LOVED LIFE, AND STILL DO TODAY, MORE THAN EVER, BEING MARRIED TO A WONDERFUL MAN!

AS I LOVE THIS JOURNAL, "REFLECTIONS OF A PRISON WIFE," IT REALLY ONLY PORTAYS ME, AND MY LIFE FROM ONE PERSPECTIVE............AS THE DAILY LIFE OF A WOMAN WHOSE HUSBAND IS IN PRISON......

THROUGH MY NEW JOURNAL, YOU WILL SEE THAT I AM A MULTI-DIMENSIONAL PERSON.............IT IS MORE OF AN UP-LIFTING JOURNAL, AS MOST PEOPLE PICTURE ME AS A DEPRESSED, SAD , LONELY PERSON, WHO SITS AT HOME WAITING FOR HER CRIMINAL -HUSBAND'S RETURN HOME......

THERE ARE MANY PARTS TO ME, AND I FEEL NOW IS A GOOD TIME TO SHARE MY EARLIER ADVENTURES WITH YOU!...................FRAN

Fran, I think it is great that you  are going to write about a time in your life when you did a lot of traveling. You have occasionally mentioned briefly that you had done a  lot of traveling in your earlier days. I for one would be quite interested in your travels and the different cultures you met and lived with  during them. So, yes, I will be your # 2 fan of your travel journal, lol, as I am sure Jimmy will be #1 fan.
I am glad to hear you sound like your spirits are raised high again Fran. Before you know it your sweetheart will be by your side again, God willing never to be parted again. Take care Fran and Jimmy. You are both in my prayers as always.
             Hugs, Cyndy. Mendota, Il.
