I don\'t order pizza as much as I\'d like, must watch my girlish figure! I bike to the food trailers for Thai soup, saag paneer, and Columbian plaintain and yucca sandwiches on flatbread from the nice lady who speaks no English and does not seem to follow my own Tex-Mex Spanish. They don\'t come out and I don\'t go in! But now I\'m thinking pizza tonight! Thanks for the idea!

wonderful,
I would think such a write would have a healing effect on the author (assuming the source inspiration be authentic), which is shared through its meditative qualities by the reader

Wonderful words Lorna, that safe place of Peace is there for you and you can just be yourself and do what YOU want to do within that place called HOME.

Nice words today, but I have to agree with dusky, Do what you want to do, not what every one else wants you to do.
Best wishes.

It is necessary to have a sanctum, a place to be self without pressures of \'outside\' and society.
When you are ready, whats is \'outside\' will be there for you. We are created to be sociable beings quite naturally......
....... time will do it\'s healing thing.

Keep safe and well.

I like the metaphor, there is an off-kilter and quirky quality to the angles in the lenses you use to give us these observations on life

Goldfinch60 said:

Time is such a strange thing we have events that make time fly by and others where we can dwell in the slowness of it. We must always look ahead as time will lead us to a new and unexplored path that will give us joy and wonder.

dusk arising said:

Many of us, of all ages, for all reasons, are living life at a low pace and the feeling of time passing purposelessly is present with these sort of regular events you describe.
Last year i survived a cancer and told myself i should live life to the full now as being a survivor, i am one of the lucky ones. Along came shielding (chemotherapy damages your immune system) and how i hate keeping myself hidden away watching these time markers pass.

But inside me at my late years there is hope for better days ahead.

I hope you too find better times ahead Lorna when life will gain a zest which you perhaps feel is out of reach at the moment.

Life has it\'s way with us, but it\'s not always bad.

And so they are, apparently, there is a training course in hanging out sheets, I haven\'t passed it yet, I am only at the socks and pants stage.

Good write Lorna.
Yes, \'Carpe Diem\', Seize The Day, as they say. But, as I\'ve said, by the time I found out what \'Carpe Diem\' meant, there was not much day left! Doh! Say it in English, man! lol. Save me all that mucking about translating it.

Goldfinch60 said:

Very true words Lorna, when young you believe that you can do anything but as age creeps up you learn from experience that you are limited in what you can do and when, like me, you reach the twilight of your life you realise that the things that you CAN do are the most important but are still able to smile at those dreams you had when young.

ANGELA & BRIAN said:

BRIAN HERE - Good Evening LORNA - Thanks for a wake-up call ! Love the Video & Lyrics - reminded me a bit of Don Williams & His style of Song ! *Dont let the old Man in* is a pipe dream ! We*re born with HIM (The Old Man) in our GENES ! I trust that although I will age EXTERNALLY over the next 50 years - INTERNALLY I will be renewed every day - AMEN. This Poem has pierced Me with three arrows - loss of Libido - loss of Mobility and loss of Mental Alertness when Im 87 ! Currently Im 37 - Invincible & in my PRIME. But if I Fast Forward to 2070 I will (God Willing) be 87 and a very different SPECTRE from the MAN you see today ! Lack of Mobility due to Hip Replacements - walkin with a stick. Glasses for reading & driving (very short distances if at all ?). Hair - White & Thinning - Nice Smile but with NHS Teeth ! My mind still sharp (but much slower) and my Libido only a memory ! Thank God I will still have Angela (82) Physios never die Young. Both of us living in two rooms in a very warm & comfortable Retirement Home - Near our Children & Grandcildren & within Walking distance of the Shops - AMEN. Ageing is inevitable but one can prepare for it & grow old gradually not overnight ! Thanks for raising the Subject it sure makes one think ahead ! Pleased You still see the Young Man hiding beneath te ravages of Time - Id love to be 17 again - despite COVID 19 !

Blessings & Peace to You & Yours
Love Angela - Brian - Smokey ! ! !

orchidee said:

Oh lol, the title. You know, do you, that Goldfinch and I were at The Battle of Hastings (UK) in 1066, in person?
I mucked it all up. I said to King Harold \'Look up, Sir\' at a vital moment, when an arrow was going by. He did, and the rest is literally history!
It\'s the 954th Reunion tomorrow. We meet up annually in Hastings (so I say. lol).
One has to have been there in person in 1066, to be allowed to attend the Reunion. It\'s nutty! It\'s us being eccentric English.
Erm, this comment is not filled with an important message, etc (what Neville said).

This is filled with an important and poignant message of truth for all those who in the prime of their youth believe like I once did, that I was immortal ....

Oooo, so true! Must by why a kiss in the rain feels so good, as it mash\'s our sand together! Maybe make a castle if you could!

Perfect timing for me and brought back memories of kid... Spinning it so fast and throwing anything on, to watch it fly off!

Really appreciated!
Gave me a chuckle x
