An update

... how it turned out

by Carol Nelson

I have enjoyed writing for the Melrose Mirror for six years now. My subjects have been varied, to say the least. I often want to write about new ideas or experiences. For example, Tai Chi. I was a dismal failure. I should have expected it. I had little coordination in any group activities in the past. I have two left feet.

I wrote about finding my way to the YMCA pool. A perfect idea. I am still swimming laps and exercising for an hour every day possible and it has been one of my happiest decisions.

Tossing out my television set was a great decision for me. There is a tall floor plant in it's place, peace in my apartment and the carnival that is Fox News can't find me.

Joining the Melrose Human Rights group was another good decision. Now I can talk with people from all over the world. I meet the nicest people who are temporary guests of the United States and of Melrose, Massachusetts.

It was fun to write about President Obama before he became our president. I feel fortunate to express my opinion even when no one agrees. We are still at warwhich breaks my heart.

Sometimes I burn to complain about the drug situation, not the kids, the seniors. Or ask why there is such an excess of x-rays, or why isn't healthier food being served to everyone?

Best of all is getting a laugh and I hope I have.
