The older I get, the faster time goes by.....

I'm sure you've all heard that expression or experienced this yourself. But, hey, I feel I have alot of things I want to do still. I was reading my Harley magazine this morning, and I want to put some serious mileage on my bike next year. I have not ridden much since I've gotten to Kentucky, (mainly because most of the the drivers here are crazy.) I want to do the Blue Ridge Parkway, I'd like to ride through the Smokey Mountains NP. I'd like to ride to SC and see my aunt and uncles. One gal in the magazine has put over 200,000 miles on her bikes. Whoa, sounds like a goal to me. Life is too short, I want more. Why do some of us wait to live? Some people need a life altering experience to get them off their duffs. I've always tried to live a bit on the edge, but I know I'm not close enough to the edge yet, to go full throttle. I want more......more experiences.........more fun, less hassles....just more. My cup is always full, I just need to drink more from it and then when I die, I'll have no regrets from here on out. I may not be famous, but I'm here and I'm going to leave a skid mark when I go. Peace!

Off and running like a herd of turtles

Some days I just cannot get it really I mean it. I'm scattered at best. I do have a routine that I try to incorporate in my life, but at times it doesn't' work out like I want. I would like to add some stretching and yoga into my daily routine.....the only stretching so far that I've gotten into is reaching for the coffee pot. LOL.. I would like to have a mulligan on my choice of care of my body as I matured. OK? I know that's not possible,... but,... how does one make themselves do what they no longer like. I used to be VERY athletic, I was on the track team, tennis team, I taught PE my senior year of high school, in college, I fenced (not on the black market), took swimming, walked, skated, rode a bike that most of my body has gone south and further south than Kentucky, I'm wishing I'd kept up with that as I got older, and heck now that I'm pretty old, it's catching up with me. OK, I'm going to quit whining now, and go get my Yoga DVD and put it in the player and enjoy my coffee while I watch it...........Peace!

Time Change

I love falling back, it's easy, it gets light earlier, can you tell I'm a morning person? I don't like it getting dark so early, but hey, if we didn't do everything "by time", we'd not know the difference. Native Americans didn't run around with watches and had to "hurry", or get stressed out by "running late", they lived with the flow of nature. I'm sure they got stressed out by lack of food, or getting very cold out on the plain....but not by time, they lived by doing and by watching nature. I try to get things done early so I have the day to do what I want and by the time the sun goes down, I'm ready to relax and get to sleep. I do not wear a watch, I carry a cell phone with the time on it, but most of the time, I don't know, nor care what time it is. Whew, three "time" words in that last sentence..............see how much importance we put on time? Ok, I'll quit now, it's time to work. Peace!
