That run that morning in Annapolis was like a dream because in it I fulfilled a lifetime of aspirations.  And this morning I got it!

So here it is for those of us seeking the man or woman of our dreams through this website...

...This website is more a support group and group of friends than it is a "dating site".

Yet I kind of like that.  Come to think of it, that's a pretty fair environment in which to find inner resources and let things happen.  So often it's when you're relaxed, happy and just enjoying the fulfillment you already have that wonderful people walk into your life.

When you're demanding and setting high expectations for others, you sometimes set the stage for frustration.  Easing up is different than throwing all your standards of behavior out the window...what it means is observing and being thankful for all that is good in your life

Said another way, you enjoy what Italians refer to as "La Dolce Vita."  Speaking of which, I recently learned in Italian a saying that reveals the secret of life...

   Dov'e si trova il tuo tessoro, la' sara anche il tuo cuore.

Anyone who would like the translation, just "ask and it will be given unto you".  Thanks John and Mac.  I will "write on" about Annapolis and Huachuca next time. Your words of encouragement are appreciated -- you rock!  

Grazie e buon giornatta tuttil / have a nice day everyone and a happy Columbus Day!

Grazie, Deke.

The switcheroo reminds me of two jokes that circulated in the old Eastern Bloc countries.The first from Czechoslovakia: 

   Under socialism man exploits man.  Under socialism its the other way around.

And one from the former Soviet Union:

   We pretend to work for the state, and it pretends to pay us.

Let's hope we avoid these jokes becoming popular in the USA. 

I like the passage you translated much better, D!

Traduzione:  Where your heart is, there your treasure will be also.

Well I have read somewhere that the secret to life is that there is no secret, but somehow I suspect that is not what your Italian phrase says. So, a translation please. rmac
