Time sure flies
The old expression, "Time sure flies," is as true today as it was when my parents used to say it. Remember back when you were a kid time went relatively slow.
I remember being in grade school and the time from September until school was out for the summer in June, seemed like an eternity.
My ex recently sent me some photos of my past, one of the most fun times in my life. Ironically I have no photos from that era or prior era's since all my belongings got lost in storage, long story, sore subject, especially having been a professional photographer for over 25 years and the keeper of family heirlooms.
Looking back seems like a lifetime ago and on the other hand it feels like it's still that same time in space.
We have all gone through different phases in our lives. As you get older you realize how fast life passes us by. Our teens with acne. Our twenties alive with youth. Our thirties making us look mature. Our forties giving us that first gray hair. Our fifties when we realize our mortality and our sixties where most of us realize the winter of our lives is upon us...
Physically every thing changes with age. Most of us get fatter, grayer, slower, more forgetful and until the invention of the great blue pill (Viagra) had very little libido left.
I recently spoke with a few friends from my past that I hadn't heard from in close to 40 years. We were talking on the phone and the thing I realized is that our voices were pretty much the same as they were in our late teens. Although most of us get grayer and fatter, one thing that remains the same is The human voice.
Now if some doctor or scientist could figure a way for our physical bodies to remain like our voices, we'd all be around for another 100 years! How cool being able to share our meals on Facebook for another century!
