Do you ever just sit some days and think back? Think of simpler times? Think of all those days that are long gone as well as the people? Think about times have CHANGED?
Changed they have. I think back to the 60's and 70's and life was just slower. Sure I was young - but in the 70's I was married, working and buying a home. Still life was different. We had fun. We enjoyed days off. We didn't worry about what others thought. People weren't offended by anything and everything.
It was a time where the one thing everyone hated was War - but that was about it. People enjoyed people and we had fun. Life was simple.
Sunday dinners and get family togethers was a thing. Music was enjoyed thoroughly. Dress was whatever you felt like wearing. We loved the earth and nature. We hated war - but not each other.
I think back to the Woodstock time - how amazing that was. Tens of thousands of people (strangers) all in one spot (in the rain) - with little food and sanitary options - and they all got along!!!! No riots, no destruction, no fighting - just a whole lot of people enjoying the moment.
I remember as a child we read books, we played on the front porch with jacks or pick-up stix, we made forts from old boxes, we waded in creeks, we drank Kool-Aid and ate peanut butter sandwiches for lunch, we rode bicycles, we helped in the garden, we took walks, we picked grapes and ate them right off the vine, we ate green apples, we drank from the hose, we were safe and made the best of simple things. We ENJOYED it.
Even when I first married and worked and had a home - we had no AC - so some days it was just lay across the bed in front of window with a breeze and nap or read. We camped, we still rode bikes out on country roads and we still took walks - we didn't complicate things. Groups of friends would vacation together. We enjoyed life.
Today everyone complicates everything. Everyone is offended by things. People can't seem to mind their own business. People worry about too much.
REMEMBER - today is the day you worried about yesterday!!
People don't seem to have common sense today - I guess that is a thing of the past.
Morals and good judgement seem to be waning.
The world and many people in it just sadden me today.
I would love to live in a less complicated world - like the old days.
I guess I have to go there in my memory and dreams - as I don't think it will ever happen again.
I try to keep life simple and uncomplicated. I still enjoy the simple things. I still love nature and the earth. I still enjoy family. I still enjoy reading a book and the breeze of a lovely day.
I wish that was enough for everyone!
PEACE and LOVE to you all!
