David Kanigan: Inspiration, Ideas & Information
Lots of truth here. Being a “died in the wool” Midwesterner, I especially struggle with the inability to cross the street to meet a new neighbor. I often feel like lots of folks have lost sight of the simple joy of just “leaning in the fence post and having a chat.” ce la vie–I keep walking and talking It just takes a moment to connect…. Have a lovely day, David!
That should be “leaning *on* the fence post” — teach me to type without my glasses….
Me too Lori. At least you lean on the fence post…that’s closer than I get.
These words were read at Matt’s high school graduation and they are posted on my bulletin board (yes I still use bulletin boards)..These words are so fundamental – we have evolved ourselves into a devolving humanity. The illusion of having it all – until one truly seeks to define what that means..
Bulletin board. Abacus. Eight track player. No wonder you are so enlightened! I’m with you Mimi….the “devolution” rolls on.
Oh so, so true. And we wonder why, in our connected world, there is so much disconnect.
Yes, Laurie, exactly.
It’s a shame, isn’t it? And to think they call it PROGRESS.
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
Funny, you are so right.
Wow, that about says it all…. Time to cross the street…
Yes it is…:)
A whole lot of truth in this one.
I’ve heard from several followers that this has been around for years and years. First time that I saw it…more proof that I stumbling behind needing help.
Sigh. And my son is only 8. Too much truth in this one. Definitely time to make crossing the street a top priority.
Enjoy it. From 8 to 13-14, it’s a great ride. You begin to lose them to friends at 14-15…
Wow…oh so true. We are constantly struggling to keep as much of the “old way”, but feel that our kids are technologically behind the times. They are the only ones in their classes who do not own a DS and are limited to 30 minutes every second day of either TV, computer or WII (we liked the bowling option so caved into that one one Christmas). Now the schools are transitioning to IPads…gone forever is the hand writing skills class! Am I just being stubborn or smart…the days of riding our bikes and playing ball or going fishing seemed so simple…..
Hi Nat. You are so on point!
Depressing but true; it seems our advances have become a leap backwards in many ways.
Yes, backwards in some ways, forward in a few others…
