29 January 2012

It's been 3 months since I posted.  In the early days of blogging, I would have decorated my blog for Christmas and put up New Year greetings.  But what with Facebook and Google reader, I ended up doing none of those things.
I feel old.  I remember seeing a bit of an interview of Julia Child by Larry King and she said that, even at 80, she felt only 18 inside!.  How wonderful to feel that way.  But unfortunately, I feel maybe only a couple of years younger than my age.  
Last night I dreamt of my parents so clearly and my mother talking to me (telling me to check whether all the doors were locked actually).  In the dream I felt young, even as a grandmother, because my mother was there. As long as she was there, even at 55, I felt young.  In a couple of weeks it will be five years since she passed away.

Unfortunately,I think the death of a parent makes one very aware of their mortality - it certainly did to me. I am very aware of time passing...so much to do and so little time:(

Maybe it's best to focus on one day at a time rather than look to the future too much.

Take care now Sue - I hope you feel better soon:)
