Friday Five: My Life Stages

Since it is almost my birthday and because my spiritual direction peer group is reading Living Fully, Dying Well by Edward W. Bastian and Tina L. Staley, I am thinking of my life in stages. For the latter group, we filled out a form dividing our life into 7-year increments, documenting "significant moments," then "people who guided and influenced me," and ending with the question, "What did this phase contribute to the continuum of my life?" This was a life Review Exercise devised by Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi.

For today's Friday Five, I am suggesting that we each divide our age into 5 sections. You don't have to say your age or ages for the different parts, unless you want to. In each of the 5 points, please describe a memorable and/or significant event, either good or unpleasant.

After you play at your blog, be sure to leave a comment here. If you provide a direct link to your blog, you will encourage more visitors! For a complete how-to, click here.


  1. I told you my age here even though no one has to post about that.

  2. OK, I'm not sure I can pull off the link thing without it right in front of me, but I'll try

    and add this, in case of failure:

    Great FF!

  3. Is anyone else getting messages from Google Chrome when opening up the Revgals site. Specfically it targets Tribal Church site as distributing malware and to proceed at your own caution. I'm posting this out of IE.

    Great FF Jan!

  4. I played here. Jan, you are getting just too close to home! 8>0

  5. I played over here and got a bit wordy. I guess I've been through enough stages to have a bit to say!
