I know that I lived them all. I have glimpses of how it was back then, and of all my hopes and dreams. But, here it is ... the winter of my life, and it catches me by surprise. ... How did I get here so fast? Where did the years go, and where did my youth go?

      I remember well seeing older people through the years, and thinking that those older people were years away from me, and that winter was so far off that I could not fathom it, or imagine fully what it would be like.

      But, here it is ... my friends are retired and getting grey ... they move slower and I see an older person now. Some are in better, and some worse, shape than me ... but, I see the great change ... Not like the ones that I remember who were young and vibrant ... but, like me, their age is beginning to show, and we are now those older folks that we used to see and never thought we'd be.

      ~Unknown.


      I don't know where you found this, but it hits home with a vengeance. It seems like we're young and can't wait to get older, then we're suddenly old and wish we could be younger again. It just doesn't seem like there like there's enough in between years.

      I never sat on a "dock of a bay, watching the tide roll away" in my life. At the right time, this is what I'd definitely do.

      And I don't agree it's wasting time. On the contrary.


      Hope you are all having a great Sunday.


      (Snapping fingers and singing along)

      Sittin' in the mornin' sun
      I'll be sittin' when the evenin' comes
      Watching the ships roll in
      Then I watch 'em roll away again, yeah

      I always found it very relaxing, soothing. Here is an interesting article. Hope you enjoy it.

      Behind The Song: Otis Redding, “(Sittin’ On) The Dock Of The Bay”

      “Dock of the Bay” was based on a few thoughts and lines Redding came up with during some time he spent sitting and watching the ocean in California. He took these ideas back to Memphis, where he and collaborator/producer Steve Cropper ended up making one of the most famous soul records of all time. In an interview on NPR’s Fresh Air, Cropper explained how he and Redding came to write the song.

      “He had been in San Francisco doing the Fillore,” Cropper recalled. “He had rented a boathouse or stayed out at a boathouse or something [and] that’s when he got the idea of watching the ships coming in the bay there. And that’s about all he had: ‘I watch the ships come in and I watch them roll away again. Sittin’ on the dock of the bay.’ I just took that…we just sat down and I just kind of learned the changes that he was kind of running over and I finished the lyrics…Otis didn’t really write about himself but I did. ‘Dock of the Bay’ was exactly that: ‘I left my home in Georgia, headed for the Frisco Bay,’ it was all about him going out to San Francisco to perform.”

      Knowing these details and not thinking something much deeper was involved might serve to shatter the song’s mystique for some of us. “Dock of the Bay” is so universal, about trying to find the beauty in life despite the hopelessness and despair we all have dealt with. The lyric speaks to the human condition, the emotional turmoil so common to all of us, with lines like I’ve had nothing to live for/Look like nothing’s gonna come my way…Looks like nothing’s gonna change/Everything still remains the same, and Sittin’ here resting my bones/And this loneliness won’t leave me alone. Redding and Cropper may not have been depressed when they wrote it, but they came up with a song that we can all identify with and that has stood the test of time. Everything has, indeed, pretty much remained the same.

      Shortly after recording the song, Redding died in a plane crash on December 10, 1967, and the song became the first posthumous number one record in chart history. “Dock of the Bay” ended up being named the sixth most-played song of the 20th century by BMI. In a testament to its influence on so many artists, this great song has since been covered by numerous artists, ranging from some of Redding’s peers to artists like Pearl Jam and Garth Brooks.

      Oh boy, now I’m crying.
      This is something that’s always in the back of my mind, but I seldom take it out and look at it closely.
      I remember thinking that the age I am now was “so old”. That my body would never betray me.
      Sometimes it’s very hard to accept aging with grace.

      Getting our patio furniture set up is always such a welcome change. With the earlier sunrise, looking forward to taking my morning coffee outside, and watching the birds, squirrels, and rabbits.

      I enjoyed watching the Academy Awards this year. Everyone sounded so positive.
      And I was happy to see these four top award winners:

      Ke Huy Quan, Best supporting actor, Everything Everywhere All at Once
      Michelle Yeoh, Best actress, Everything Everywhere All at Once
      Brendan Fraser, Best actor, The Whale
      Jamie Lee Curtis, Best supporting actress, Everything Everywhere All at Once

      I really enjoyed it as well. They also won another awards at The Screen Actors Guild and at both awards I love hearing from James Hong!

      The list of the shows he did is so long and he was amazing in everything he did. From his start as a voice actor when they remade the original Godzilla from the Japanese version to an American version with Raymond Burr, to roles on shows like Kung Fu, Big Trouble in Little China, Hawaii Five O and so much more. I loved is voice acting as Mr. Ping (The father of Po the Panda) in the Kung Fu Panda series.

      I mention this because this prolific performer is still working like crazy at the ripe young age of 94!

      Sometimes you have to stop worrying about everything
      and just relax, breathe, and have a little time for yourself.
      Enjoy your day!
