I stumbled upon a piece from Vera Nazarian’s book entitled “The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration”:


What do you think? Do you agree with her?

My best friend is my husband. We’ve been through a lot. We fought, we laughed, we cried. I don’t think I can find another person who can understand me and accept me for who I am, for what I have become.

I have friends in high school, in college, and in my previous job. Some are still in contact with me, thanks to Facebook. But it is really different because I am now living in another country. Things changed as we don’t see each other everyday anymore.

Right now I am struggling to find a new friend. I have workmates, but too early to call some as friends. I guess it is true. It takes time and effort to have a friend and to become a friend.

  1. Life is a constant struggle for adaptation. I am impressed with your story. Keep posting on your blog. I too feel like I am in another country, but I am still in the United States. I moved from a bustling beach town to a retirement desert in the middle of nowhere. Most neighbors are here for only part of the season. RVing will get us out of the desert when it becomes inhospitable. I am adapting:)


    1. Thank you for your comment.
      Did you move to another state?
      I find it hard to make friends with my neighbors because I do not yet speak their language and they cannot speak English. Just smile, wave, and Hallo every time I see them. šŸ™‚

    2. Same State… same language, a retirement community though and I am a young soon to be 62. Culture shock is all. My husband became ill and was forced into retirement before we were ready. Now I am so grateful we are spending 24/7 with each other. Escaping the brutal summers by RVing with an awesome cat and writing about my experiences has saved the day. Keep waving and smiling at your neighbors. Maybe take a language course if you are so inclined.šŸ‘


    3. Are you in Texas? Hehe. It’s only Texas where I know there is a desert. šŸ˜
      Maybe it was a fate for him to get ill so he can retire early and can spend more time with you. Time is very important in a relationship and I think you’ll agree with me. You are still very young, and it is good you’re writing about your experiences in there. We feel like we are with you while reading them.

      I am planning to take a language course, but I ain’t have the time. I work full time and there is no night classes. But I will try my best to find time to self-study.

    4. I live in beautiful Californiaā€¦. working full time definitely puts a damper on a language class. You keep writing too!:) check out some of my earlier posts. I have been traveling for 7 months now and have seen some beautiful places:)
