For visually challenged writers,the image shows an arrowslit looking out over a body of water, with an ancient stone wall and curved tower just visible.
The visit to the ancient castle wasn’t going well. The kids were cold, tired, hungry, and cranky. Sam was resentful that Jeff hadn’t listened to her suggestions about bringing a picnic basket for the kids or stopping by the refreshment kiosk to get the children something to eat and a chance to rest.
As far as Jeff was concerned, he was having the time of his life. Being a history buff and especially interested in this particular castle, he was oblivious to the misery others were feeling around him.
When he saw the arrow slit he was overwhelmed with excitement. Sam remarked sarcastically that her husband’s mind was like this narrow opening, nothing go in except what he wanted or liked. After delivering this cutting remark, she took both the kids and stepped out of the claustrophobic confines of the tower of the castle.
“We are headed towards the hotel, you can stay here and enjoy more history or come with us to enjoy what’s left of our vacation, together as a family”After sending this text, she looked hopeful towards the castle’s exit. Sure enough, a sheepish-looking Jeff exited the castle and they went toward their hotel, in a more cheerful mood.
I truly believe this as I practiced it myself. Learning new things not only kept me informed all through my life but also kept my mind active. Learning also has the added advantage of driving away ignorance and arrogance. See how many benefits are there to keep on gaining knowledge all through your life.
Lucy was the epitome of a comic with elan and style. She rose to popularity when there were few, if any women in this field. She was never afraid to make herself look and act like a fool. It was the most endearing of her traits. And this advice is so spot on. Living honestly, and eating slowly would definitely make you age slowly. And when someone remarks that you don’t look your age, do agree with them ( tongue in cheek)
You’re only as old as you feel
Who are we to dispute this truth
You can be old at thirty and young at sixty
Ignore the aching bones and creaking joints
Laugh with joy at being alive and being able to do so
Life is a gift to be savored and enjoyed till we’re alive
