Developments

A   L   O   H   A !

 “ Middle-aged people 
— like me — 
often look back on 
our teenage selves with 
some mixture of amusement 
and chagrin,








" What we never seem to realize
 is that our future selves 
will look back 
and think
 the very same thing 
about us. 













" At every age 
we think we’re having 
the last laugh, 
and at every age 
we’re wrong. ”

Daniel T. Gilbert 
Harvard Psychologist

I'd Rather Be Incomplete,
and Growing,
than Finished-
How About You?

            Warmly, Cloudia

I don’t want to go back to a younger age. I like who I am now and the person the years have made me.

I think I took too many trips I can't remember my youth. Oy maybe I never had one and it's coming back to catch up with me now?

I'm definitely incomplete. These are sage thoughts to view the life cycle with. Beautiful sky pictures you posted today.

I think what a naive fellow I was as a teen, although I was a much nicer person then.

Incomplete and growing every time Cloudia.

Elephant's Child said...

Stunning skies. And I would hate to be younger - and hope I am past middle age. I can't see myself still enjoying life at double my age...

Merlesworld said...
