Quote of the Day

Quote on a picture of the sun setting on the Bay of Biscay as seen from Biarritz.

“Advice is a form of nostalgia. Dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it’s worth.” — Mary Schmich, “Advice, like youth, probably just wasted on the young,” Chicago Tribune (1997-06-01)

Quote of the Day

We seem to be going through a period of nostalgia, and everyone seems to think that yesterday was better than today. I personally don’t think it was — and if you’re hung up on nostalgia, my advice is to pretend that today is yesterday and go out and have a helluva time.

Remember When?

Library Walk New York CityThey’re younger than I am.

We’re talking, creating new memories. Memories that remind.

A daughter, my son, a sibling. They recall a time together.

Good times, family time, quality time.

Some I don’t remember. Some happened when I was younger than they are today. Memories that remind.

I’m still getting used to having old stories to tell.

They’re younger than I am.
