The Circle of Life



Well.... here's a profound thought for the day culled from a long ago memory. Just short of forty-seven years ago Barbara and I were living in a small rental house trailer in Monroeville, PA. The trailer had one bedroom, a bathroom, kitchen and living room. We had no TV and spent lots of time walking, talking, reading and at the end of the day..... we sometimes played Gin Rummy.

Fast forward to 2009 and here we are in London England. We live in a small 'flat' that has one bedroom, a bathroom, kitchen and living room. We have no TV and spend lots of time walking, talking, reading and at the end of the day.....last Sunday night we played.... you guessed it.... Gin Rummy.

Now... That's Progress

That is classic! I love the simple life. The only problem is that simple life will only last until next March then it's back to the grind of a big house. You might miss the little flat?!! :)

I don't know, but I'm looking forward to the day I get to find out.

Yes, but look at all that is in between. Isn't it nice that we don't move so far away from the simple little pleasures and realization that mostly what we need is each other and we can be happy and find contentment.
