There was a Yankee who left Cleveland
With a quick snappy wave of the hand
Never once looking back
Now from a southern shack
Greets Y’all saying ain’t life simply grand

Q&Q“There is more to life than
increasing its speed.”
Mahatma Gandhi

 It seems we think faster is better for most everything.  The other day I was putting a package of stuffed peppers in the microwave and I had to laugh at myself because I thought fifteen minutes was a long time to wait for it to be ready to eat. And let’s not forget how long we have to wait for a K-cup to brew for our morning coffee. Oh, and if we come to a traffic light and it changes to red and we have to stop for that minute to wait for it to turn green again is like forever! Maybe sleep is the exception to this silly need for speed. Although, we do usually want to fall asleep as quickly as possible.

I wonder what Gandhi would think of the pace of life today?

People say when you look in the mirror it reflects who you are.  She knows that isn’t true because when she looks in the mirror there is a reflection of a rather short pudgy old woman with bad posture, grey hair, and wrinkles. That may be what others see if they look at her; which most often these days they don’t. The mirror may reflect what others see but it only reflects the outer. Yes, she knows she is old but she sees the truth in the mirror and she is still beautiful.
