Today’s hectic pace

In the ‘good ole days’ everything seemed to move at a much more relaxed pace. Not as many people around me were stressed by deadlines or anxious about shedules.

As a youth I was fortunate that we even had a television in our home. The worst problems in the schools were chewing gum and throwing ‘spit balls.’

As a young man, though I was task-oriented and strived to reach my goals, there was no email to check, no texts to send and no need for the latest electronic device. 

I don’t want to return to ‘the thrilling days of yesteryear,’ to quote the announcer’s booming voice on one of my favorite childhood shows, “The Lone Ranger,’ but I sometimes lament the changes which have made us more tense.

I am having a very busy week, accomplishing goals with the business and meeting with authors by appointment on two days, then leaving for a few days in Kentucky for a conference and the poetry reading next Monday by my friend, Lee Pennington. 

Here’s hoping you all have a pleasurable week. Just download one of our books, perhaps my new one, Most Comprehensive Origins of Cliches, Proverbs and Figurative Expressions, to your Kindle, and relax. It will make you think and at times, smile. ‘Life is what you make it’–Where did this originate? See the book!
