"....there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too." Goethe

The new year has arrived and as I glance at the Seneca Wine Trail events calendar and other calendars for the Finger Lakes area, I am noticing that they are filled with great and exciting things to do during the iciest days of Winter. There are so many wonderful weekend getaways arranged for visitors driving or flying in from other places! Time passes quickly when there is a lot to do . . . and I have a lot to do.

So far I have outlined this new conversational space to tell you about things and ideas that I am passionate about. I am finding that writing here will be a great way to tell everyone about what the 1922 Starkey House will offer. Things like comfy beds, freshly ground and brewed coffee, and a delightful porch to have breakfast on or to kick back and read a book. But, equally as important, it is a place for me to share the ingredients of my life's experiences with others and maybe get some good ideas back in return, while making some friends.

 This last day has been enlightening! What a great response to my first post...the first step and genuine commitment to a creative and productive venture.
Thanks to my lovely daughter, Rachael, for encouragement and support...not to mention..a boot in the pants. I have begun...

"...whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it."     Goethe

Please follow me on my passionate adventure!
