Things Do Change as You Grow Older


Yesterday was Sluggish Saturday (my own fault). Today is (somehow) laidback and thoughtful Sunday. And as those days go, your mind tends to wander. Suddenly, like a hook, it snags on a specific stream of thought, and you just can't let go of it.

Change.

That's what I have been thinking of all day. Today's devotional reading was about change. I think that's why I cannot keep it out of my head.

The years that add up and change.

Some changes I have noticed - the good and the bad thrown in the mix.

  1. You become more open to different experiences, music included. I've posted about The Gotan Project, an awesome group that I can't stop listening to right now. If you had asked me five - no, even two - years ago, I would never have even considered listening to them. Now, I am not an audiophile. I know how to play some instruments but I am not skilled. While I don't mind looking at hardware like Morley Volume Pedals, I don't have anything except an acoustic guitar and an electronic keyboard which doesn't work anymore I think.  Anyhow, yes, while there are still staples in my playlist, more new stuff is added quite often.
  2. You learn how to be less uptight and controlling. I suppose this does not apply to everyone, and I am not saying that I am not in the least bit uptight or controlling. I have always liked keeping to myself and being in control of everything that happened to me. Unfortunately, the Universe has a different idea and has thrown lots of things my way to teach me to loosen up. Still lots of room for improvement, but I am getting there.
  3. You can't go out all night every single night and expect to function normally. Do I really need to say more about this?
  4. You have to learn how to take care of a baby on your own. NO, I do not have a kid, but at this point, everyone seems to have one. That means taking one for the team at least once and playing nanny when there is a need. Oh, and it won't kill you. ;)


Now watch/listen to this. Gotan Project's Last Tango in Paris. Perfect background music for the day!
