passing by

I have started to see things from a different perspective of late. Looking around me while out shopping I see people from my school days aging, looking bald, fat, wrinkly even, yet in my mind I havn’t changed. Well perhaps physically as the years take its toll but not really mentally. I think I am the same human being that I have always been with good moral values and a down to earth, honest approach to all that I encounter. I watch my mother and father daily when I call from work and dont see rapid change, rather subtle little changes in their physical structures. My mother informs me that her mind feels the very same way as mine, yet she is 29 years my senior (still 18 years old in my mind she says) … the body changes and withers and the conveyor belt of life moves on by with us locked tightly on and without any chance of escaping its firm hold. My mum talks about the end of the conveyor belt drawing nearer for her and my dad and my wife and I will soon take the place of them in the family packing order. Strange … I find myself reflecting back to my childhood a lot these days, the fun and joy of the good times I had with my sisters and mum and dad and all those ‘timeless’ moments that are still engraved in my mind. Yes the memories of yesteryear, never to be forgotten and always to be fondly remembered. I think I am a better person now for this and understand the need to spend time with my own children and propagate those same memories in the minds of my little girls. I am on the conveyor and standing firm … not wanting it to end for any of us … If only I could stop and rewind it a little and once again visit some of the good old days. I guess life must go on … I intend to enjoy all the days that I have left, always keeping in mind that the fond memories are made while on that slow and sometimes painful journey to the end.
