'The only thing that is constant is change' was quoted by Heraclitus a Greek philosopher. He was referring to universal flux. My universe has been in a state of flux for several years. So much has changed in my life that I feel as if at the age of nearly 70 I am starting all over again. I have to acknowledge that although I have taken a break from WDC for quite a while it is responsible for the start of my journey into a very different way of life. The support and encouragement that I received at a time when I was struggling with inner turmoil helped me to change direction and I hope in time I can share my journey. I have found me. I am back!
