I feel the need to say something meaningful, since it's the holiday season. I'm no longer a traditional kind of guy. I've, lived too long, the fairy tale child in me, comes so little. I do love it when my record of life skips though, stuck in the groove, if only, momentarily, I do, I really do. Innocence without thought, is so precious.
We all know what this holiday is about. It has been instilled in us, so deep, one can never forget.
Why? Is it the longer, I'm in this exercise of existence, this dimension of learning, the less . . . this time of the year is? The wonderful imagination of childhood . . . I yearn for that, I truly do! The excitement of mere simplicity, has left me. A Christmas tree in any window as my family once upon a time drove by, was magical. Now, the yearly nightly ride of the city's neighborhood lights leaves me longing, yearning!
These monstrosities of cheap plastic santas, snowmen, grinches, mangers, golden stars atop the roof, does not move me! The flashing lights upon the roof, sickens me!
Apparently tis, only me, as ones are seen scurrying about, store to store, spending, charging, more, more, more.
Will the world stop if they stop, their scurrying, hurrying, quest for???
Commercials, advertisements, half off, greatest sale ever, it goes on and on!!!
Think along with me now if you will . . . please? Close your eyes, lean back in your chair.
How do you feel about this season?
Is it the merriment of the season?
Just another holiday off work?
The hunt for deals, the shopping?
Family gatherings. "( That's always so special! )
Ah the religious aspect, we could never forget about that!
TIS NOT MY INTENTIONS TO RAIN ON YOUR PARADE/HOLIDAY, I MEAN! I'M AN OLD MAN WHO'S SEEN MANY A SEASONS COME AND GO. MAYBE THAT IN ITSELF IS THE REASON. MY CHILDLIKE EYES AND MIND, ARE ALMOST GONE!
THE WOMDERMENT OF A CHILD, IS A MAGICAL RIDE OF IT'S OWN. LET THEM BASK IN IT!
BUT WE MUST GROW UP, AS WE GROW, WE GO ON A LEARNING EXPERIENCE NOT TAUGHT IN OUR FORMATIVE YEARS. THE SCHOOLING OF LIFE'S REALITIES ARE NOT MAKE BELIEVE. NO INSTRUCTIONAL GUIDES HANDED OUT, NOPE! YOU BE ON YOUR OWN BABY!
IF ONLY THE FAIRY TALES, WE LOVED AS CHILDREN, WERE STILL TRUE, LIFE WOULD BE SO MUSH EASIER.
Merry Christmas to all, and to all, goodnight!
