years go?" It was a rather depressing thought that I can remember more than what is yet to come. I guess in these days, though, youth can be a matter of perspective. Lots of people age physically faster than others while others can fool people by retaining youthful looks.
I reminisce about all the yesterdays - all the good times along with the bad times (although I do try to put these moments out of my mind or else I'd lose my mind!) Just what IS youth? It seems to me that when I was a youth, we were innocent, naïve to a point, and looked forward to the future and all it had in store for us. The youth of today are so much more sophisticated than we were, generally less mannerly, and more socially connected due to the technological revolution. It's just - different.
I noticed that a movie called "Youth" is coming to town soon - its release date was December 15, 2015. I watched the trailer and am adding it here so you can have a peek. It stars Michael Caine, Harvey Keitel, Rachel Weisz, and Jane Fonda. Take a look and see if it might be your cup of tea.
I just hope that, God willing, I will still have many more joyful tomorrows than I've had lousy yesterdays, especially recently.
So with 2016 upon on, may I wish you all a very Happy New Year and "take a cup of kindness yet, for auld lang syne!"
Many, many thanks to the youthful Denise Nesbitt, the creator of ABC Wednesday, and to that old Yankee Roger, our administrator. Also, thanks to the team who have made yearlong treks over to every contributor to make sure everyone gets comments and who also share in doing the introductions.

- I took very early retirement from teaching in '06 and did some traveling in Europe and the UK before settling down to do some private tutoring. As a voracious reader, I have many books waiting in line for me to read. Tell me I shouldn't read something, and I will. I'm a happy, optimistic person and I love to travel and through that believe that life can be a continuous learning experience. I'm looking forward to traveling more some day. I enjoy walking, cycling, water aerobics & and sports like tennis, volleyball, and fastpitch/baseball. I'm just getting into photography as a hobby and I'm enjoying learning all the bits and bobs of my digital camera. My family is everything to me and I'm delighted to be the mother of two girls and the Gramma of a boy and a girl. I may be a Gramma, but I'm at heart just a girl who wants to have fun.
