I got to thinking about a previous post I wrote titled “A Day For The History Books” and realized I’ve lived through quite a few historical moments.

  • Man’s first flight into space
  • Men landing on the moon.
  • The Berlin wall coming down
  • The end of Communism in Poland
  • The Bay of Pigs invasion
  • Cuba becoming a forbidden place to travel
  • Cuba being re-open
  • The information highway going from phones with party lines to high-speed internet and instantaneous communication via video cam phones on the computer.
  • Not to mention the Vietnam war, and the Middle East wars.

And I’ve only lived 1/2 of my life – at least chronologically. What could possibly be in store for the next half? I guess I’ll just have to wait and see.


About Mme Jocelyne

Hi, I'm a transplanted northerner–(born and raised in New York to French immigrants–Oui je parle Francais)-living in Florida for 20 years. In the 70's I worked as a realtor in the Bronx – City Island to be exact. Then I started a family and didn't keep up my license. I aspired to a career in architecture, so I went to New York Institute of Technology for three years, moved to Florida and finished my degree at the University of Florida in Gainesville. After 10 years of working in my dream career I sustained an injury to my shoulder. This injury never healed because I was constantly on the computer doing cad design. I finally decided to make a career change – something where I could use my training as an architect. Needless to say, I was worried – where will the money come from? How will I be able to afford my career change? But, I put my faith in God and went for it. It’s the best move I ever made, other than my husband, children and dogs.
