As I pass 3/4 of a century in age…. three quick thoughts on life’s road

April 4, 2021

….something I read yesterday that resonated with the way I have been feeling lately and I wanted to share it with you.

Is it the ‘slowness’ ?.  I am not able to walk as fast as I used to. I am not able to work as hard as I used to. There is forced retardation to our youthful pace. The joints creak. The back hurts. Is this what we dread?

Is it that point where the generations that came after you seem to be operating in a different world that you are not able to easily fit into, or even relate to in terms of technology, lingo, or living values?

Is it the passage of time that does not allow you to pursue certain things because the window of opportunity has closed? 

Beyond a point, you don’t get ‘do overs’, second chances. 

So one more time..

a reminder..

that it is the journey..

not the destination.

    Happy birthday Pete.

    I’m watching a special on Ernest Hemingway. If accurate, it seems to me that while there is more technology in our lives, the people haven’t changed much. A few more do-gooders possibly.

    Cheers to you!

    Every day, it sometimes seems, there is a new hurt somewhere. But you have to be alive to feel it, and as long as we are, let’s find a new happy to balance that hurt. That’s what I aspire to do; I don’t achieve it always!

    Something we need to remind ourselves of A LOT more often
