Exiting The Fast Lane…

We’re all suffering from “chronic busy” and we need to exit the fast lane before we crash and burn!

Summers used to be fun! The pace of life slowed down. We were outdoors from 8am–8pm. There were bikes to ride, places to hide, homemade popsicle to eat, and stars to gaze at. I’m not just waxing nostalgia, I’m trying to figure out what the heck happened!  Is it I just got older? That’s true, and times have changed.  Now we’re inconvenienced with conveniences. iPods, computers, phones, video games, even cars, have taken us further from nature – From our source.

I for one will be trying to reconnect with some of the above this weekend. The only danger is I might create an itinerary for relaxing and getting back to nature! So to quote Bruce Lee “Be like water.” I will attempt going with the flow. I hope you’ll try do the same.

Exiting…

As Time Goes By…

I just finished sending a birthday card to my aunt V, she’s turning 80. How the hell did that happen? Wasn’t it yesterday she was playing kick-ball with us in her backyard on Bradford Street? Didn’t she just walk us all over the railroad tracks to swim at the bottom of Maple? I mean we all just got back from Andy’s gas station with a banana popsicle and fire balls? I thought I just saw uncle Mo driving his VW Beetle into the drive way – Isn’t he bringing home chow mien sandwiches from Bing Sum’s?

Unfortunately all those wonderful images occurred over forty years ago! Sadly everything I mentioned besides my aunt have passed on or changed… Yes Time goes by, but it’s so lovely to visit the memories…

Have a lovely Birthday Aunty
