Thursday Memories

 

 

This photo was taken a long, long time ago. When I was young. Not just young-er, mind you, but truly, actually young.

 

When I look at that girl, living that previous life, I am amazed she survived. Happy for her, too. And though I recognize her, I am not her. Not anymore.

 

Today I am older. A whole year older, in fact, as today is my birthday. And though I have more wrinkles than the kid in the photo above, I also have more good memories. More to smile about. More love than I ever thought imaginable. I think that counts for a whole lot.

 

Here’s to another year. And hopefully another. And another. And…

Spring Forward

 

 

Last night we sprung forward for Daylight Savings Time. I was talking to my pal Betro earlier this week about that very subject. She said it’s not her favorite direction, as we lose an hour. I told her I agreed and would prefer to Fall Back every six months. I said I’d like to just keep going in that direction until I’m actually younger.

 

Please don’t do the math and spoil my fantasy. Thank you.
