Iris was self-confident. She stood out in the field. Being a self-starter, she did not wait for the others to reach her full bloom. Pansy, Daisy, and Petunia could bloom in their own time.

Bloom where you are planted. When the time is right, you will know it.

After completing my Ed.D., the frustration of finding a teaching position where I was willing to live, led to Ron and I leaving the country. We intended to travel for a year before settling somewhere in MA or RI. We left the US without any credit card debt, no car payments and our house mortgage paid by renters. We had $10,000 in the bank to make our way through a year.
