I don't own a house on a hill, but I've climbed many a hill, and slept upon some in a whispering tent, among the flowers and the stars.... I don't own a motorhome or Aston-Martin sports car, but I've rambled through high mountain ranges on a powerful motorcycle, the thrum of its engine in tune with the rushing of blood in my veins....I don't live in a mansion, but I have lived for two decades in a small house warmed by a woman's love, a house that has rung for years with laughter.... and I don't sit on corporate boards of high power or prestige, but I've seen the joy in a child's face over something I've done, and I've had young mothers bring their babies to me, just so I could see them....

Yeah, I've made compromises in life, not a damn one of which I've ever regretted....ever.....

Sounds like a really good and wonderful life to me. Don't ever stop living the good life. Material possesions are just that and they don't make people happy, just deeper in debt and you can't take them with you when you go.

Well put. Just curious where you are in the third pic. Looks like a nice ride!

Descending from the summit of Stelvio Pass, Italy...... a must-do ride!

From my view points of the things you said you didn't have and etc is most likely why you still have good morals and you value the good things in life and why you have a good home life. :claps: solaro

A damned compromise sounds a little like a regretted one.
Nope, the "damn" was for emphasis........ the compromises I made were "blessed" ones..... I traded money, prestige, and power -- for freedom, love, nourishing human relationships, and adventure..... it was a good bargain thirty years ago, and it's a good bargain today!
