Knowing Glimpse


A  L  O  H  A !
"When you arise in the morning,
 think of what a precious 
privilege
 it is to be alive 
- to breathe,
 to think,
 to enjoy, 
to love. "

Marcus Aurelius 










"How old 
would you be
 if you didn't know
 how old you are?"


Satchel Paige













" Any glimpse
 into the life of an animal 
quickens our own 
and makes it so much
 the larger
 and better
 in every way. "

 John Muir

Why of course I'd be old enough to know better and young enough to not care.

That is an older Golden Retriever, a little bit darker than our Tessa.

Greetings,

If I didn't know how old I am, I think I would be the same complicated age as I am today with a mind which is sometimes ten and sometimes a hundred and ten. The body (sadly) leans towards the higher number - but I wouldn't be a teenager again for anyone.

Anonymous said...

22 would be good; the mind moves from 8 to 80; the body isn't 22 anymore! Had a Golden Retriever before, such lovable big bears. They come in very light blonde to dark. A graying muzzle and lightening face lets you know they're older. DrumMajor

Cloudia said...

So glad to see both of you! Thanks for the comments

Blue Ridge Mountains said...

I love your quote about memories.

Cloudia said...

Thank You!

I think my brain thinks it's 35, but the body surely knows better as I'm learning to my consternation.
