Central High School
Class Of 1961

HI -

 

I guess it's been a long time since I edited this page - so here it is!

Hope this finds you and yours in great health and looking forward to 2019!  Amazing!  2019 - how did that happen - just a bit ago it was the turn of the milenium, and just before that it was 1961!!  Lois and I have certainly been blessed with good health and grandkids!!!  What could be better than that?  We have three and are looking forward to June when our youngest son will add another boy to our family.  

 

We have once again traveled to Ft Myers to escape the Minnesota winter - February was the snowiest on record in Minnesota!  And I know that many of you have experienced similar weather in your home state.  Seems like we have ever wider swings in weather these days, but I can't decide if that's just the memories of an old man, or if it's really true.  A little of both I guess. 

With that in mind, I ran across a short essay about life's seasons - hope you enjoy it.

 

AND THEN IT IS WINTER –

 

 You know. . . time has a way of moving quickly and catching you unaware of the passing years.

It seems just yesterday that I was young, just married and embarking on my new life with my mate. Yet in a way, it seems like eons ago, and I wonder where all the years went.   I know that I lived them all. I have glimpses of how it was back then and of all my hopes and dreams. But, here it is... the winter of my life and it catches me by surprise...How did I get here so fast? Where did the years go and where did my youth go?

I remember well seeing older people through the years and thinking that those older people were years away from me and that winter was so far off that I could not fathom it or imagine fully what it would be like. But, here it is...my friends are retired and getting grey...they move slower and I see an older person now.    Some are in better and some worse shape than me...but, I see the great change...Not like the ones that I remember who were young and vibrant...but, like me, their age is beginning to show and we are now those older folks that we used to see and never thought we'd be.

Each day now, I find that just getting a shower is a real target for the day! And taking a nap is not a treat anymore... it's mandatory! Cause if I don't on my own free will... I just fall asleep where I sit!

And so...now I enter into this new season of my life unprepared for all the aches and pains and the loss of strength and ability to go and do things that I wish I had done but never did!!

But, at least I know, that though the winter has come, and I'm not sure how long it will last...this I know, that when it's over on this earth...it's NOT over. A new adventure will begin!

 

Yes, I have regrets. There are things I wish I hadn't done...things I should have done, but indeed, there are many things I'm happy to have done. It's all in a lifetime.

Stay well my friends . . .
