Let’s talk about life…I’ve been around long enough to know that, what we think about our lives today, here and now, is going to change. No doubt about it, none, whatsoever. For as good or as bad as we feel right now, then, like the weather, there’s another front moving in… For as long as man has existed, he has searched for the meaning of “Life” and the why and wherefore of being..  Well here it a word.. “adaptation” yep, that is why we are here, to learn, to grow, and hopefully, improve with each generation and to do that, we must not stand still. The alterations will happen whether we like them or not, because without change, we become stagnant and cease to explore the wonders of life and of living. Change is like a pill, that we must swallow, it may be the bitter-taste type and yet, may help us with its effects. And sometimes, the ‘medicine’ is the “fast-acting” one, though more often it is of the “timed release” variety. But like it or not, you gotta take your meds.

     Have a safe and sound Saturday,


Sorry, I couldn't resist

(sorry, I couldn’t resist it)


With quickness and with drudge,

come life’s changes sure.

The former leaves no time for thought,

whilst the latter, time endures.

Not all for good, the changes be,

but, they not all, be bad.

Some with joy and speed arrive,

whilst some, weave a web, so sad.

    What a great analogy talking about change & the different meds we take for the ailments we face in life! If you don’t mind I want to share today’s blog with the support group made up of widowed & divorced that I go to each week. Change is what we in the group are dealing with in so many facets of our lives & some of us better than others. Maybe this will help some of those who are struggling to see their situation in a different light. Keep writing!
