Another birthday has come and gone, and I’m finding Aerosmith’s Dream On particularly pertinent….
“Every time I look in the mirror
All these lines on my face getting clearer
The past is gone
It went by, like dusk to dawn
Isn’t that the way”
Time really is just jetting by at an exponential rate, and despite the fact that I’ve got a touch of Dorian Grey in me, one does begin to notice the lines, graying hair, etc!
As we age, we inevitably change, and these changes are something to embrace. Nothing remains the same. In fact, stagnation really is more akin to death. One has to embrace and savor every aspect of this journey, wherever we are on the journey. Of course, birthdays do give one pause to reflect, and perhaps one isn’t always exactly thrilled with one’s progress, but perhaps we are exactly where we need to be and all is unfolding quite as it should…delays do not mean denials!
All this being said, McBee and I had a wonderful time out at the Four Seasons restaurant. With the impending closure in July of 2016, we thought it a good idea to catch it before it goes. We really are stunned and perplexed that the owner of the Seagrams building would not want to preserve the Four Seasons in its present state. It is the perfect space, but sadly protests seem for naught. Perhaps the lesson is (and this goes for getting older as well), enjoy what one has, while one has it!
