Well another year has gone by and it's the anniversary of my birth today. I've finally made it to what most folks feel in the age that reflects maturity or senility, 65, not sure which one describes me best. I do know one thing for sure, I have an over abundance of time to reflect on my life up until now. I do try and nap a lot so I don't have to do the reflecting but you can only nap so much.
I have come to realize that it isn't so important to ponder on the things I didn't do but rather of what I did, regardless of the outcome. Like the movie Bucket List we all have a list, either written down or in our heads of things we didn't get a chance to do. Some of them in review are things that can be done but most are just dreams that never got fulfilled.
As I look at my list there are the normal ones for someone like me, an old fart bachelor, things that time just slipped away on. Lists are nice but sometimes just get in the way of what really is important, like waking up to see the sunrise, taking an afternoon walk and watching the sunset before going to sleep.
Another thing that I suppose maturity brings in the realization that my opinions and experiences are mine and really can't help others, for you see we are all destined to walk down the road we chose and experience whatever our travels bring us, it's what makes us the person we are, unique, unlike anyone else.
Okay, I'm done here, well not done here but.......you know what I mean.
