SLOW DOWN

Hey lady, slow down.  You move too fast!  Where are you going in such a hurry?  It’s 7 am and there are maybe 10 people in the grocery store.  They are all old.  Shoot, if I’m old, you’re older than dirt!  We know you are not rushing to go to work.

What a bizarre sight.  Old people with masks and gloves shopping at 7 am.  We are supposed to keep 6 feet between us.  The store is empty enough you can actually avoid being in the same aisle as anyone else.  That is only possible if you slow down and let me clear the aisle.

It’s spring.  The sun is out.  We might as well make the best out of a bad situation. Spring is all about rebirth.  The world we lived in 8 weeks ago is gone.  We might as well make the present world as friendly as possible.  Something good from something bad!

In the words of Simon and Garfunkel, “Slow down you move too fast, got to make the morning last.”  At our age, making the morning last is pretty good.  Don’t you agree?  

The song goes on to say, “No deeds to do, no promises to keep, feelin groovy.”  There is one deed to do and that is to keep a safe distance from others.  There is one promise to keep and that is to make the best out of life.  Boy, I’d love to feel groovy again.  We both could if you would just slow down and quit invading everyone’s space.  In fact, now that I’m home, I’m feelin pretty groovy.
