Every adventure is a new beginning in life | Hansville Happenings

We all face new adventures in our lives and each adventure that you start is really a new beginning — a change in your life.

We all face new adventures in our lives and each adventure that you start is really a new beginning — a change in your life.

When you started school or when you had a new sibling born into your family, then your life changed, and a new way of life was established.

If you found a spouse or a special person with whom to share your life, or when you started a new job, or especially when you retire, it is another beginning.

Everyone can count quite a few beginnings, but recently I challenged one of my classes to write about a new beginning. I got the usual topics: First day on a job, first day of college, first day the baby was brought home, etc. But the one that stuck in my mind was the person that stated that every morning he wakes up is a new beginning.

What a good concept.

As I’ve mentioned before, September is my beginning of the year and this year I’ve added a few new activities. I’ve started another Memoir Writing Workshop in Silverdale. First meetings have happened and now we get down to the real fun of writing down those past adventures and new beginnings for the children and grandchildren to read and enjoy.

Another activity on my plate is to organize all my columns from the past into book form. I have all of them on my computer but I’m thinking I need to photocopy the actual columns and use that format. That would be a challenge, but I am thinking of doing it anyway.

And the last new activity is to organize the garage. I know this one will be easy (right?).


On the local front, don’t forget Octoberfest at the Greater Hansville Community Center, on Oct. 5; the information meeting on Oct. 13 to show Hansville residents what will be available if there is a disaster; and the Social Hour on Oct. 17 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., and again that evening at 7 p.m. Greg Johnson will tell all about his Skunk Bay Weather site. Go to www.hansville.org for details.

Wow, October is almost as busy as September. Wonder if that is setting a trend for this year?

  • Donna Lee Anderson will be at the Kitsap Regional Library Little Boston Branch Oct. 12 to discuss her new book, “Project Emily.” The event starts at 11 a.m.
