SIGNS OF THE TIMES

Times are marching ahead more quickly than I anticipated.  I used to get down on the floor with our Golden Retrievers, Peaches and Carrie, to brush them and cuddle.  Getting up was no problem.  I still get down there to do some stretches and  look for other things to do.  Getting up is the problem.

Once a Dairy Barn

Some things make me sad.  This was once a prosperous dairy in a rural part of my county.  Now it stands as a monument to  simpler times and natural spaces.  But, “that’s progress,” or is it?

Sign of the Times

Sign Chair Massage

I actually stopped and did this after a grueling day on our Wild West adventure!

It was a first.

But ignoring the cautious inner voice of the secret invisible inner me, I thought, “For goodness sake!  You are on vacation.  Just do this.”

The challenge was to ignore the fact said chair was in the middle of a bustling shopping center.

Inner Voice:

“O.K. you have made your own stupid decision.  

Now go!  Go forward!  Just do it!

I paid in advance and then stumbled onto the torturous device.

Hoards of  passing people  were surely snickering at this poor tired lady sloping face down in the center aisle of the mall.

Inner Voice:

“Don’t bother me with your regrets now.  

Take your punishment without complaint.”

Trying to look nonchalant I finally realized my face was only visible from the floor up.

What was the view from the back though?

Relax.  Relax.

Who’s laughing?

After a minute or so, the tension left,  muscles went limp, the inner voice disappeared, and

ohhhhhh – what a delightful respite, what utter luxury, what a way to revive your shopping urges!

Have you done this before?

Forget your face, forget your backside view.

And if you have a cautious inner voice, ignore it.

Just “Do this.”
