So, it’s officially a year here in Saudi Arabia. What can say to this life changing year that has been like no other? The biggest event was in learning to scuba dive. So far, I have flown a helicopter, skiied, and followed photography as major interests and hobbies. I have minored in golf. Well, there are some friends who know my golf skill, or lack thereof, and will attest that I’m out to have a good time riding the cart. The only unfulfilled thing on my list was to skydive. Both my kids have tandem jumped so I guess it’s vicarious pleasure from them to me. I have loved, married, had kids, and watched them grow up. I think my own parents would have been proud of what I have done.
To have only one life, I can say I have few regrets. I’ve had a pretty good time. I’ve been privileged to touch and save some lives. I’ve done some surgery that has been nothing short of wonderful and there are folks who lived a better life because of it. And, with it I remember sadly that you cannot save everyone. At this point the adventure continues and I am doing things that are not naturally within my comfort zone. I have been to and will visit some places I might not have otherwise had opportunity to see.
Photography remains my main interest. It keeps pushing me to new adventures. So as I look ahead there’s a lot to do and plenty to keep me occupied.
