Let’s do the time warp again!

August 20, 2008

It amazes us, that the more things change the more that they stay the same.  There is an old saying that if you stay in one place long enough, everyone that you have ever known in your life will eventually come to you.  So, it goes without saying, that it is nice to re-discover old friends from ones past.

It is nice to know that the past is still alive.  That it remains a fixed reference in time, from which we can travel forward;like the best library books, it is a reference to which we can refer.  It is a beacon from which we can derive the velocity and direction of our life.  It gives us a tool with which we can correct our course, and continue our inevitable journey to the west.

The idylls of youth stir our heartstrings as we remember those halcyon days.  We were the princes and princesses of the Summerlands, beautiful and fair.  Age has cleaned the harder side of adolescence, and all that remains are memories of how damn young and naive we all were.  It was a more innocent time, and we were still children then.  Now, not so much.  Gray hair, children and the details of adulthood have changed us.

So we spread our wings once more, point our nose at a star, and roar off into the night.  Behind is the pale blue dot, ahead the vastness.  The dragon says bring it, throw me into that brier patch.
