…remember the good old days… they’re right now…

…it’s a well-traipsed saying… ‘when ye’re old enuff to know better, ye’re too old to do anything about it’… how often when this ‘ol Jurassic was a young lad, the thought of reaching the next watershed age in my life couldn’t come quickly enuff… when ye’re 12 years old, people at 21 seem so cool and mature, and those at 40 are positively ancient… comes 25, and 50-60 are the limits of seniority, while 65+ are ‘foot-in-the-grave’ material… then yer 40th arrives, and all of a sudden pensioners appear closer to yer peer group that yeez ever thought comfortable… forget 50, 55 and 60’s milestones… they just sneak up on yeez at warp speed…


…now 100 could be a nice target, Mabel, but just don’t ask me to sprint anywhere… lessons sum’times get picked up on the way… the ‘Life’s what’s happening while ye’re busy doing other things’  type of lessons… one biggie that sticks with me is, ‘…remember the good old days… they’re right now’… I know it sounds a bit homespun, but consider it for a moment… unless yeez have found the Doctor Who tablets and Time Travel, yeez aren’t capable of living any other nano-second than the one yeez are in at this moment…. neither historic nor future… yeez are gifted with the ‘now’… make the ‘now’ yer ‘good old days’… savour the experiences yeez have in front of yeez… enjoy the company, even if, and sum’times especially if, that company is simply yer own shadow… the decision to be content or otherwise is usually yer own to make… and as the Desiderata says, when it’s all said and done, for all the negatives we hear blasted at us from the 24/7 Cable News purveyors of calamities, disasters and tragedies. this WURLD can still be a beautiful place... see yeez later… LUV YEEZ!

  3. I agree with Olga. Each of us needs a healthy sense of humor. We have to remember we’re living in the present moment, Not even the past moment or the future moment. 🙂
