If I had to describe myself, it would be in a word that has many meanings with a complexity which falls off the tongue.
A word made up of many elements, is deceptive in appearance, and creates an illusion from the imagination.
My word would be Phantasmagoric. ~Summer Ross

Tell the truth Thursday


Tell The Truth Thursday  The question from The Redhead Riter 
"What do you miss most about being young?"

I miss alot of things about being young, but I think the thing i often find myself looking back on is time: when I was young a moment seemed like forever, a half hour was longer than what it is today. I could play forever before I had to come home- even though my mom said "an hour max". That hour was good for making dolls marry each other, camping out in a friends back yard pretending the bears were out to get us, dress up, eating lunch (even though I hated mayo), a huge glass of coolaid, running to the park to play on the marry go round, then to another friends house to pet puppies.

 See look at what got accomplished in just one hour of kid time!
 Now days it takes an hour to drive across town, pick up a movie, then drive back.
an hour to vacuum the floor, through in a load of laundry, and make lunch.
At max I manage to accomplish three things, most times one or two though...yeah I miss the kid time I used to have, where everything seemed to last forever, time stretched out for miles...
I will not be available most of today to read everyones blogs, I have a DR. appt that will be putting me on sedatives, anyway I'll catch up this evening or tomorrow!

Thank you for participating in Tell The Truth Thursday!

You are so right! Time! Where does all the time go now? I always say that I wish there were 48 hours in a day and that it was still only required to have 8 hours of sleep. Think of all that time!

I miss how a dollar store toy plane became the ship that defeated tyranies and earned the pilot the acclaim of all sentient people!

Time does fly, I agree with you! We shared the love of playing house and life. Reality with all its responsibilities, doesn't compare to Barbie & Ken!

Oh to be young again. I do miss time that you allow yourself to have fun, because as a child you don't worry about how long anything takes, how much fun you'll have and if it's worth the money.

Sometimes I forget to enjoy the moments... guess it's something I should let my inner child do. Help me let go.

I miss being the kind of fearless that had no regrets. Still have the imagination though.

I'm not old, but GOD getting older sorta sucks sometimes.

That's so true what you said about time. I hadn't thought of it that way... I was too busy looking under the rug for the missing time. Where oh where did it go?

I heart comments~~ You all Rock my world!
