seeking youth…

“I have made no adjustment whatsoever to aging. In fact I had lived my entire life to date without seriously believing that I would age.” Joan Didion, Blue Nights

Tucked out of the way…

in an old work shed. All manner of stuff stored from the rafters, buried in the accumulated sawdust and dirt on the floor. The light and the wind makes its way through the old windows and the cracks in the siding. Not enough time, money or inclination to handle all the stuff. Someone else will have to do that some day.

‘Things’ changed…

I recall fishing with older gents years ago. Often, I would see them taking breaks, leaving the water, be it a lake or river, to sit and stare. The conditions weren’t particularly harsh. Why were they not fishing at the optimum times?! I would power on hour after hour, catching fish and shaking my head to the fun the older gents were missing.

Those gents are long gone now. Moved on to quieter waters. These days, things have changed. I don’t fish nearly as much. When I do, I put in a half hour or so and then find a place to sit. I smoke my briar, stare at the water, maybe take some photos. My mind is not as energized to fish for hours on end. I am now one of those older gents. Things changed along the way and the urgency isn’t there. I surely enjoy the outdoors, the waters, the imagining of fish and habitat. Yet, a break along the shore is now as good as the throwing a line for hours on end. Now I see.

there’s a rhythm…

“Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river…runs over rocks from the basement of time.. I am haunted by waters.” Norman Maclean, A River Runs Through It

the breadth of life…

“The afternoon knows what the morning never suspected.”  Robert Frost

Yesterday, I attended a wedding. A family/friends affair that was perfectly loving and celebratory. As I looked about at the hundred or so guests and family, I was struck by life’s simple passage: a recent widow, divorces, expecting mothers, elders, innocent children, the married couple, the shy, the extroverts, the over all happy vibe, the worn down wedding planners, the young, the old. Obvious, but often ignored patterns of life and beyond.
