SMWI*: About Right


The gray in your hair doesn’t make you old,
Nor the crow’s feet under your eyes, I’m told.
But when your mind makes a contract your body can’t fill,
You’re over the hill, brother, over the hill.

    Ouch! on hitting the mat. Different Strokes. The Sumo’s commitment to his craft … I’ve got to respect that. After a carb fueled morning I will go walking among the flowers like a I did yesterday, jacket-less .. ( I kinda have a love/hate relationship with carbs) Mary E. Mitchell, words — made me think ..when I am old I hope that I still have a nimble spryness in my step, that my heart is still young at heart, my mind wise and that the light of my soul is still giving…ps: passion that occupy me and some strong lungs to keep singing those tunes of Bille Holiday and Julie London –Kindly, Christie

    Perhaps, West Coast kids are kindred spirits? We did go walking in the forest, then on to gawk at a winery’s architecture. The winery has a pioneer graveyard on site We always walk through that scared spot and read the headstones & paid our respect. I noticed some amazing bright multi-ruffeled headed daffodils in a bed of thick, heavy moss – made me wonder how many decades they have been, gracing the graveyard.. (btw I lived across the street from a graveyard when I attended the University) So many great headstones and roses) We then drove the beautiful back-roads to a town of 5,000 to a wonderful favorite, Mexican Restaurant for a late lunch / early dinner. Yum on the carbs 🙂 and the garlicky prawns. Ten minutes later we were home…
