Time is elusive, and I know this is all about perception of time. As a child, there wasn't too much to see looking over my memory-shoulder and it seemed to take so long for the next grade in school to arrive, for a birthday to come... for the dentist to finish his nastiness in my mouth.
Now, I look back and wow - it goes all the way back to the pre-computer and pre-space age. I wore a Davy Crockett cap and watched Buck Rogers on the big screen. I lived in France only a decade after World War II ended (playing in bunkers and picking up souvenirs). That's a long, slow way back.
Now I can almost smell 2011.
Not disturbed...just noting.
Speaking of dentists, are you one of those who hasn't seen this yet?
Our hard-earned hindsight (gained from that stretched out past) has taught us to treasure the moments.
We’re aging like fine wine, right?
Happy Easter to you & yours!
Time flies, doesn't it? It's because we're having fun!
Happy Easter, dear friend.
As a child I also recall how long the days stretched out especially just prior to Christmas until, at last, I could finally open my presents – not that they were anything special by today’s standards. But to me at the time, time seemed endlessly slow.
I lived in the country and we found many war time relics to amuse ourselves including a deserted air raid bunker not far from an aerodrome but obscured in the bush complete with an old phone. What a discovery! It soon consumed our interest for many long happy hours of pretend war games during the fifties.
David.... i have a son named David. he inherited his father's troublesome teeth, and spent a lot of time at the dentist as a wee lad. never as amusing as this fellow, though.
