Live Life and Laugh

To live life and laugh is a conscious decision to determine mood. I choose an elevated mood by concentrating on the upbeat and humorous things in life, and have adopted "Live Life and Laugh" as my personal motto.

It is wonderful to have a partner who exhibits a great joy for life and who is a devoted worker of many talents.

Our love story spans half a globe and many challenges, not the least of which is to live together in the same country. After a bunch more forms, togetherness will be achieved in the near future.

The 17 hour time difference has meant that our frequent conversations have spread each day over 41 hours. Do I live her time zone, or does she live mine? Who knows. A simple 24 hour day would be a great gain for both of us.

I am trading a mostly coastal existence for a life at altitude in the valley of the Great Salt Lake. Here I live in the high temperatures of the subtropics. After all my years of heat, I am willingly going to a place that has four distinct seasons and some very delightful snow. Besides, the mountains of Utah are spectacular and beautiful.

My move represents a chance to really live life to the fullest with my beautiful Christie. I can speak my Strine; she can translate - in a country where every one, to me, appears to have an accent. She has a good ear and is quick to imitate my lip-lazy, Australian English. Her greatest challenge is to render "hooroo" correctly. However she has eagerly adopted "bloke" into her vocabulary.

Christie sings beautifully: I would occupy, with ease, a lip-synch position in any choir. We have a lot to laugh about together, and laughter is life
