Some blogs focus on fitness, some on politics, some on religion, some on hope, some on past generations, some on food, some specific to running or weight training, some on writing, some on education …

But, I must be truthful … this blog is about nothing while it’s about everything at the same time.  I originally thought it was about freedom, but now I see freedom is nothing because to be truly free, you must be free to do nothing while looking like or trying to do something!

Pay attention.  You might learn something.  Most likely, however, you will learn absolutely nothing!



Freedom is many things to many people.  One thing Freedom is to me is the ability to express oneself and that is what I plan to do with this blog … I will express anything and everything that comes to mind.  If it’s crap, tell me.  If it’s good, let me know.  If I offend thee, even better!

It’s about Faith, Hope, Love, justice, and simply being just to be.  Freedom is a God-given right and all are welcome here to express what they choose even if I don’t agree. 

You either believe in Freedom or you don’t.  You cannot shut someone down because you simply do not hold the same beliefs.  That, to me, is a most important fact about Freedom that, sadly, some people in our culture have forgotten (sometimes, ironically, in the name of tolerance!).

I look forward to hearing from you…

  1. I’m old enough to retire but I can’t. My husband is disabled and I’m the bread winner now. We can’t live on what we would get if I retired but I don’t mind working. I love my job where I drive three hours to the remote community where I live for the work week and then drive back home on Friday. But at our age I’d rather spend more time with my husband. When I was younger I dreamed of retiring early and spending my days writing books that would encourage people, keeping my website updated on items of importance and designing jewelry. Well I’ve done a little of each of those items in my dream but I’ve been limited by a five day work week. I still dream though and I believe one day I will be there in that cottage on an island with the sound of the sea. Relaxed, happy, fulfilled and inspired by the waves crashing on the shore.

  2. Hi there thanks for stopping by and liking my blog enough to follow. I am always grateful and surprised when people follow me. I agree with your views on life and look forward to checking out your blog! 😉 xx

  3. Thank you for following my blog FBF, it helped me discover yours. Freedom has a price and I know it well. Good luck to you and I look forward to reading more of your posts.

  4. Hello newest Spikey! I know, a bit corny, eh, but that’s the term that has come to stick for those folk who are part of the clan known to be followers of Uncle Spike 🙂

    Thank you… I really appreciate that as I for one, know how many interesting and entertaining blogs are out there.

    My aim is to deliver an eclectic offering of posts, from my ‘point n shoot’ attempts at basic photography, to the sharing of my travel adventures over the decades, as well as day to day happenings here on the farm. Oh, plus a few observations on life as I see it, thrown in for good measure.

    My promise to you is not to be overbearing, just a couple of posts a day, maybe 3 at weekends if I have something special to share. But if you are at a loose end one day, maybe you’ll enjoy trawling through some of my older stuff too. I have added plenty of categories to help in said digging process.

    Thanks again and hope you have a great day…

  5. Thank you for following my blog. Your blog title “Free by Forty” caught my attention as it was only in my 40th year that I finally started to really live and enjoy the life I have been given!

    • Hi Noelene,

      I do not write as often as some others out there, but I try to put my heart and soul into it!

  7. Thank you for finding and following my blog. My blog is a mixed bag of life in general, writing photography. And most of all my favourite country I call home Australia..Thank you for following

  8. To me, writing about ‘nothing’ IS writing about everything. That’s what I do on my blog too – but I call it ‘flashes of life.’ May be both enjoy our flashes, and enjoy writing about them. Great blog you have here.
