Thinking Out Loud

You know when we reach a certain age we start to wonder and say aloud, 'where has the time gone?'

Well, the fact is 'time' is fleeting. It can't be any other way. That is what time is after all.

'Time', the term, is man-made. I suppose it was deemed necessary to account for and keep track of unfolding events as they happened.

It appears that when we are younger we don't seem to notice 'time'.....we are busy, usually healthy and more interested in getting through chunks of time to get to another chunk. 

This all came to a head last month when Ron and I were in his hometown of Wolfville and just happened to be walking down the tracks where we used to wait for the train to get back to Halifax.

The picture below (which I have posted before) was taken while waiting for the train....on Thanksgiving Day back in October 1984. 

So on this particular day in the present I thought it a good idea to 'recreate' that scene some 27 years later! And Ron was willing too! Brave soul...I wouldn't have done it!

                            The train has long left the station but don't tell Ron! lol The station building is still there....serving the community as a library now. 

Besides still being the BEST looking guy around, we both got a kick out of doing this but could not believe how much time has passed.

We both feel and think the same as we did 30 years ago (well almost except for a few aches and pains). We are quickly brought back to reality when we catch a glimpse of how we are changing physically. 

Such is life. The key is in the way we accept and embrace these inevitable changes.

And that is what got me thinking about this whole' time' thing in the first place.
