I’ve come to this conclusion that I am old. Old like decrepit.
So old that back then there was a time when if you did something really stupid and crazy the idea was to keep it really quiet so no one would find out (not filming and broadcasting it for the world to see). So old that back in kindergarten the rules applied: be nice to one another, and if you don’t have anything nice to say don’t say anything at all (those principles still apply today, don’t they). So old that if when sending out a message to someone it would require pen and paper, and too often times the paper would end up in the garbage and never get sent (rather than the instantaneous “Send” or “Post”). So old that separated were we by miles and distance (rather than one).
So, while though old and antiquated in my ways I will say that while back then “those were the day” they are nothing compared to today. For all that yesterday offered, it is past. The only living is in the present. So may all of what today brings, as change is ever evolving, we are all able to adapt and come together – as one. Not one thought, one ideal, one way, but rather one common goal of not looking past this precious day.
