Daily Prompt 2023-02-08

“What a slut time is. She screws everybody.”John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

Is there anything you feel too old to do anymore?

I am too old now to waste time on trivial matters. I am too old to say “yes” when I really mean “no.” I am too old to be in one-sided relationships, whether it be with friends, family, or co-workers. I am too old to be using my feelings of guilt to be the catalyst of whether I do something or not do something. I am too old to compromise parts of myself just to make others happy.

  1. For Nova
    From across the cyber waves I say
    Pray let go the sails of demons past
    Pray new horizons are within your grasp
    For as blogs declined, as interest waved
    I remember well dear Novas posts

    A lawyer whose talent is the martial arts
    At home in legal drafts
    or of fine words she composed
    Now Boxing away those darkest thoughts

    may you find the gentle spirits helping hand
    To find new paths or for a trip or two
    So cheers to a lady with a passion and class
    Who soldered on like the stoics of the past.

    1. Thank you so much, Lindsay. This was so beautiful, and it brought tears to my eyes. I appreciate our long distance friendship
      that has spanned for so many years. I am truly honored to have crossed paths with you. You and our dear friend, Gary, have always brought me comfort in ways I so treasure. Thank you for your continued friendship. May God continue to bless you, my dear friend. Sending you love from across the seas.
