It's the time of year that change is noticeable....however, in my woods the trees still retain their leaves and very few have changed color yet. Here's the view outside my living room window. . . .
I've been thinking lately about how quickly time seems to be moving on. There have been a lot of DVD movies about aging couples lately. I've come to the conclusion that older people talk about the past as a way to avoid looking at the future. We recently watched a movie about NOT aging called "The Age of Adeline." TRAILER. Adeline has a near-death experience in 1937 that causes her to stay 29 for the rest of her life! "Don't you wish!" you say. The movie, however, shows us the downside of not aging.
When I was a young child I remember envisioning myself in the future as a "little old lady" in a rocking chair. I can remember where I was and what I was doing when I "saw" this. At THIS point in my life (I'm on the cusp of being able to get Medicare) I'm hoping that was a premonition--that I'll make it to THAT point. In the meantime, I have a lot of living to do between "points" and I don't want to miss a thing!
My question to you this month is this: Do you have, what another movie called, a Bucket List? TRAILER It's a list of things you want to do before you kick the bucket! If so, what's on it?
My List: Learn to draw and paint so I can illustrate and publish my children's stories; walk in a Redwood forest; spend a month in England; live to see all my grandchildren reach adulthood
