The past, trolleys and cougars
I do love the quote about “if you don’t know where your going any road can take you there”. I’m very nostalgic about my childhood and so I look back often and fix what I break if I can. Recently I ran into an old girlfriend and I apologized to her at length because I kinda bailed out on our relationship in the way that arrogant, cocky 16 year olds do…you know….no regrets, no remorse….LOL …no compassion. She said it was ok she had let it go years ago…she was happy and that made me glad as my own knife had scarred me more than it had her.
I like looking back but not over my shoulder….hindsight being 20/20…. it does me good to reminisce about my youth. This is a pic of the trolley in town that was a small diner…..you know?……. hot dogs 30 cents…coke in glass bottles. I took it when I had a day off and went to my old hometown and walked my 4th grade paper route. Ok I’m getting Norman Rockwell overload now…….enough…….I learn more from walking in my past than I do setting up rules for my future. Sometimes you get the cougar and sometimes the cougar gets you. One thing is sure…if you don’t hunt…. You wont catch anything……a smart cat knows that……
