Here’s looking at you (again)

Youth. One day you wake up and find that your youth is well and truly gone.

Irredeemably. For ever. And it’s not coming back.

It’s the day you suddenly realize that the songs on the radio which you fondly think of as songs from yesterday are actually decades old.

Where does the time go ? When did they change the script ? Why did no one tell you ? It feels like you slept half way through a movie and suddenly woke to find yourself in the middle of the next show. What are you doing here ? What happened to the show you were supposed to be watching ?

And the funny thing is that while we spend most of our adult lives planning and worrying about the future – the future manages to catch us by surprise anyway.
