Do you remember when we could look into the future?
When the prospect of turning 47 in the year 2000 seemed such a long way away?
Now it’s well been and gone and here we are twenty-one years later looking ragged and getting more so as each year passes.
It was all about the adventure of life. Long walks of discovery, meeting new and exciting people who shared with you their particular take on life which you either took on board or rejected as some crazy perspective.
When you are a child the future seems so far away. It’s hard to comprehend that you would get old, that you’d live longer than your parents.
I look out now at the view in front of me and I take in the beauty of it and I marvel that despite the years rolling by the view is still as magnificent as always.
