20 Oct 2015 – Of Past & Present
Mon: catching up with newspapers headlines collected on the flights before putting them into the recycle bin. Unbelievable amount of junk, bad journalism, depressing news, etc. Do people really pay money to read such trash?
The link below has inspired this posting.
Some amazing pix to remind us, the senior citizens, that yes we are aging and that is reality. Reflect back and remember the blessings in your life’s journey. Live and enjoy every moment to the fullest with the time we have left…
A comment from Julie in NC/USA: My mom told me that my aging dad, a tall and handsome captain of a ship in his younger days, used to look at his reflection and sigh a deep sigh. I interpreted it as , ‘Look at me now.’
After reading this, maybe he was seeing the reflection of his younger self but his sigh still meant ‘Look at me now.’ It was the tenor of his sigh.
My reply: For me the sigh can be interpreted – those were the days, been there, done that and glad that I do not have to do it again…
But then as Munch said – the truth lies between two lies 🙂
This is what happens when I get stuck indoors. Took me forever but eventually found the pix (1961) with my first camera and 50yrs later in 2011 at Yulis wedding with a digital one.
Still enjoying and having good times with different cameras over the years, but has to be idiot-proof, ie simply just aim and shoot. No, do not want a selfie stick, takes the fun out of it for me!
Working hard to focus on clearing junk out of my place and packing away stuff that no longer are in used. Perhaps that can distract me from the very itchy heat-rash. Not getting any good night rest with this on top of the jetlag 😦 This too shall pass 🙂 🙂
The haze is bad and if the heat-rash gets worse, might consider going away if the oral meds do not work. Do not understand how is it that the PSI reading in the west is 400+ ouch, while here in the east, it is 60+??? The news below in not something any of us wish to hear. Have not even dare to venture outdoors today and tomorrow will be another day…
It’s just another day for you and me in paradise
It’s just another day for you and me in paradise, paradise
Just think about it, paradise, just think about it
