The Past

“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”  George Santayana, from The Life of Reason, Vol 1, 1905

Reading the words above make me realize how “not in the past” I am living.  Even though it is good to remember our past, we need to make sure not to repeat the wrong decisions we made.  We all have growth as we get older.

And older I am.  I still have spontaneous moments when I want to dance in the rain, scream at the top of my lungs and roll down a hill (hopefully missing any dog poop on the way down).  laughs

“They” say, and I’m not sure who they are, that people get stuck at a certain age.  It matters not how many years old they are.  What matters is what age their brain gets stuck at.

I’m still stuck somewhere in my 20’s.  Maturity at age 25.  Seems like an oxymoron.  Not too many people are mature at that age.  They are still searching for themselves (as are some people at 50).

Yet, the body knows it’s not 25 and so there are limits to what one can do in spite of what one may want to do.  Still, being older and having a youthful mind is not so bad.
