FLY DUMBO FLY----nooooo wait!!!

Having just made a post of the oldest still useful item in the house, my mind has kinda lingered on that "Starving Student" era of my life, and my mind set during those days, and comparing it with the mind set of the last 20 years of my life, and then looking forward to the future, and attempting to bring to focus how my life might go---in that suddenly I find myself being once again a solitary man.

It strikes me that in the last couple of weeks since LP's passing on, that I have to come to grips with the fact that every minute of everyday is all mine to use, I can come and go as the mood strikes, meal times are whenever and wherever I care to make them----it, at the moment anyway, boggling my mind---don't laugh, but I kinda am identifying with that baby bird standing bravely at the edge of his nest, flapping my wings----but not sure yet.!! (lol)

Time will of course resolve all the many questions that I am now having to deal with, Keep this, dispose of that, move---and if so where, what is affordable, etc, etc, etc.----and of course the overall overiding question----what do I want to do with the rest of my life?? I have no definitive answers at this moment---the old dude's mind is truly Boggled---I need more data, need lots and lots of data---knowledge is power----(sigh).



  1. Oh sweetie. That was such a thoughtful and deeply revealing post that Joe stopped watching his football game to listen to me read it aloud. With all bad things, come blessings. (and vice least in my life) Your sounding board IS YOUR PAST. Examine the past dear one, and see what you missed by having a lack of knowledge that you've garnered through your life. Move slowly, but deliberately, and never do something that can't be undone, unless you're sure of it. Then, fly dumbo. FLY.

  2. Couldn't say anything better than that, very well said!

  3. How thought provoking Dana, I loved it.

  4. You will figure it out Gary!! It does take time. Nows your chance. Maybe write down your thoughts and go for them one at a time. We are all here to support you on your next chapter of your life. And what a great chapter it can be.


Speak up, don't be a nebish---your opinions do count.
