Last summer ride before school Youngsters prepare to hit road



“Sometimes you just have to jump in a mud puddle because it’s there. Never get so old that you forget about having fun.” Tom Giaquinto, Be A Good Human      


Neighborhood youngsters make final adjustments to their bicycles and prepare to enjoy an afternoon ride the weekend before school is scheduled to start. The day was sunny, the weather warm and welcoming and the desire to hit the road and feel the wind on their faces irresistible. The summer weather was agreeable a good majority of the time this past season. Today was special because they knew that next week school bells and wooden desks would once again place them in the halls of learning. It was a fun summer!

The concern many folks express these days about retaining a youthful, wrinkle free appearance and staying young forever is met with enthusiasm by those cosmetic and skin care companies more than eager to offer their anxious customers the panacea of  eternal life and well being.

The real secret to remaining young and alert is to refresh, nourish and maintain your childlike curiosity about life in general and experience each day as unique and wonderful no matter how bad an outlook your family friends, politicians or even co workers my pass your way. They arent you. 

Face creams, lotions , potions and notions will cost you a bundle of money with minimal results. But harvesting a positive inner attitude and looking forward to each day will at least psychologically slow down the aging process that fretting over everything offers you.

Many times teachers reap the real benefits of this search for youth quest. Each year a new batch of young minds are regimented into their classrooms and provide not a challenge to overcome but an opportunity to share and celebrate in their students potential learning experiences. 

Staying forever young in a mere physical sense deprives you of a certain comaraderie that the aging process naturally bequeaths to us all. Peter Pan finally understood the curse of remaining forever young. His anxiety cuased him udue worry and stress. He might have remained young outwardly but inwardly he was beyond senility.

Keep yourself mentally young and vibrant by developing new talents and abilities you once wished you had investigated. You’re never to old to learn, discover and appreciate who you still may become. Carpe Diem. Enjoy the search.
