A Place That Speaks

“There are studies out there that suggest we’re all born with genetic memories – that we move through time carrying the experiences and cultures of our ancestors. i wonder now if there might be something to that. All I know is that the first time I saw ______, I was filled with a sick-happy, uneasy-but-thrilled feeling.”Raymond M. Lane

Challenges As We Age

Chemical/ software engineering is not difficult. Handling the bills, lawn,and ¬†family members is easy, relatively speaking. Putting plump baby feet into velcro sandals without leaving out a baby toe, now that’s too hard for me! Good thing he’s a patient baby.

Drink a special tea, call a pal, window shop in a new locale, see a Indie film or be utterly creative. Balance your day so it includes a special reward or a memory.
