Our dearest Carolyn has the desires of a much younger woman. This has come as a great surprise. No longer content to sit idly by and watch the world go by our dearest now wishes not only to contribute, but, to make the world her own. By this, Dear Ones, is meant:
As the years pass, for the majority of humans, comes lack. And what does this lack entail?
It entails a lack of interest. That is right, Dear Hearts. As the human ages there comes a lack of vitality. Without this vitality the human experience becomes without pleasure. Yes, Dear Ones, this is so. A lack of vitality creates lack; lack of interest being the first response. There is much more lack when vitality is lost. However, suffice to say the organism retires from worldly events. Yes?
Yes, this was becoming true for me as I aged.
And now dearest?
Now I am not content to sit and watch the world go by, as you spoke. Quite the opposite. I now want to do so much; knowing that I have the ‘vitality’ to do so.
Yes indeed, dearest. Yes indeed.
We’d chosen to travel the ‘back’ route; the scenic drive. This was the scene kilometre after kilometre – the charred remnants of Australia’s burnt land as we wended our way to Katoomba and The Three Sisters. As is the case with fire, it was selective. The following image shows the opposite view – a landscape untouched!
What surprised us both was to see the devastation of so much of the land. We took image after image, kilometre after kilometre, of homes, businesses and fire selected properties.
What a contrast could be seen between the first image above and the second. However, we travelled almost the entire route with the first image being our view.
We were so happy to see much of the landscape, touched by the earlier fires of the season, sprouting new growth; as is expected for all the charred remains.
Lush growth will return. Homes will be rebuilt. The native animals will slowly grow, once again, in numbers; and life will return to a more pleasant hue.
For us, K and I, life has not changed except we are both enjoying more! More vitality, more desire for youthful experiences, and a feeling that life, instead of becoming less will become more!
