Life in the Country Lane

-Just some thoughts and words on slowing down, and finding myself.

Wednesday, March 29, 2006

Life in the country lane....I remember in high school, I couldn't wait to get out of the small town. Run to the city and find a life of my own that had nothing to do with farming and much more to do with European rock music and working in a lab. Where I could find other people that shared my ideas and ideals. Where life was fast and hectic and full.
HA! What is that old proverb. The easiest way to make God laugh it to tell him your plans.

Here I am 20 years later. Back in the same small town where I grew up. I know the words to every country song on the radio station. Life is hectic alright, but it has more to do with carting children around to their activities and helping my parents grow old with health and dignity, than going to exotic places and doing oh-so-important research.

These are going to be my thoughts on growing up, growing older and how wisdom is wrenched from life, and not just handed out like the mail.
