I feel A little....Old

Sunrise, sunset
Sunrise, sunset
Swiftly flow the days
Seedlings turn overnight to sunflowers
Blossoming even as we gaze
Sunrise, sunset
Sunrise, sunset
Swiftly fly the years
One season following another
Laden with happiness and tears

Let us know how your first day went, Kevin. I'm excited for you.

Thanks for the support! Well, it was interesting. I am the oldest one in the class, not entirely surprised. I kept looking around and wondering if I was like all these 'kids' when I went to school the first time

Now that I got the first day out of the way, I think it is going to be good. I like the professor and think I will have little trouble understanding her teaching style and such. I have two more classes that start in 2 weeks, but today's was the one I was most concerned with.

I hope all goes really well for you, it's not easy to get back into the classroom after more than a decade. Congratulations, Kevin!

A bit melancholic.

Things are really tough right now, The situation within the family, which I am not permitted to talk about is difficult, so much change, so many differences, a lot of uncertainty regarding the future, and a great many risks are being taken. The situation at work is also strenuous, as it has been getting more challenging ever since the recession began, We are probably about to enter our third (Triple dip) recession. Whilst respectively, we are one of the more lucky companies, we arent likely to go out of business...but never the less there have been changes to ensure that profit is still being made. In regards to my personal life, I am struggling, my past haunts me as we break a decade on my annus horibilis, Old temptations appear more apetizing then ever, I am facing some really difficult tasks to over come, tasks I should have been busy with a very long time ago, but some which if they arent tackled now, threaten to become a real hazzard. I truely miss Jens The Budgie, and feel sick whenever I think about the cull which claimed the lives of two of my best Budgies

Above all...I feel really old, I feel cold, and I feel alone...I look back and I wonder what actually have I managed to achieve that is of any worth? What can I say my life has actually been all about? What future prospect do I have to attain beyond that which Ive reached already? I wonder how it is ive got this far and still have no clue where I am going. I think it might be to late to change, and wouldnt know how to start at any rate

Its funny...because some people hear this track and they think its beautiful, a friend of mine even says she has sung it many times at weddings. I find it more poingent really.

Is this the little girl I carried?
Is this the little boy at play?
I don't remember growing older
When did they?
When did she get to be a beauty?
When did he get to be so tall?
Wasn't it yesterday
When they were small?

Sunrise, sunset
Sunrise, sunset
Swiftly flow the days
Seedlings turn overnight to sunflowers
Blossoming even as we gaze

Sunrise, sunset
Sunrise, sunset
Swiftly fly the years
One season following another
Laden with happiness and tears


What words of wisdom can I give them?
How can I help to ease their way?
Now they must learn from one another
Day by day
They look so natural together
Just like two newlyweds should be
Is there a canopy in store for me?


Sunrise, sunset
Sunrise, sunset
Swiftly flow the days
Seedlings turn overnight to sunflowers
Blossoming even as we gaze

Sunrise, sunset
Sunrise, sunset
Swiftly fly the years
One season following another
Laden with happiness and tears

Dave, you may have SAD...seasonal affective disorder. I think you get melancholy every year about this time. It's treated with light box therapy or a move to a sunnier climate. I get a touch of it in March if the winter is lasting too long.

I agree with Amy, why not try that Dave? Many people have SAD, including my better half.

With all this gloomy weather we've been having here Dec and Jan, I've felt a little of the winter blues too. Give me sunshine and blue skies!

And I think you have to tell him this every single year Amy. Year in. Year out. Maybe some year he'll get it
