Its amazing how much of growing up is getting back to who you were as a Child. SInce the industrial revolution, the ultimate nanny has been the media. Most of what we learn, our impressions and attitude towards life stem from what we watch in the movies and listen to on the radio. Now in this technological age, the Nanny has evolved to indulge all our senses simultaneously; leaving lasting impressions in our subconsious, thus forming the very core of who we are. We depend on the nanny and come to trust everything – good, bad and ugly. People born before the year 2000 can relate to the phrases and clauses used in the village as most of them stem from a collection of our collective influences. All writeups intend to use music, movies, moments, memories and mementoes to preserve all we were and teaching subsequent generations of times past so they can really have a choice. Nothing happening now is new. We are living an infinite series of repeated events, saying the same things in different ways, in a loop that never ends. i sang this song and loved it for the hauntingly beautiful melody
No more champagne
And the fireworks are through
Here we are, me and you
Feeling lost and feeling blue
It’s the end of the party
And the morning seems so grey
So unlike yesterday
Now’s the time for us to say
The difference between bravery and Stupidity is the success rate
Sometimes I see
How the brave new world arrives
And I see how it thrives
In the ashes of our lives
Oh yes, man is a fool
And he thinks he’ll be okay
Dragging on, feet of clay
Never knowing he’s astray
Keeps on going anyway
The world has been “bad” long before i was – and it only seems to be getting worse
Seems to me now
That the dreams we had before
Are all dead, nothing more
Than confetti on the floor
It’s the end of a decade
In another ten years time
Who can say what we’ll find
What lies waiting down the line
In the end of eighty-nine
It seems to echo the beliefs and hopes of the period which is ironically needed now more than ever. At least they can still see the confetii…so there is a glimmer. After you die, nothing matters anymore…unless you left people behind who that memory minded. So while you are here, will you be satisfied with the life you are currently living or you will realize that you are loosing time in decades…loosing how and passion…slowly but surely. Make the Resolutions whether you keep it or not is irrelevant…the thought counts and there is a hidden reward in the effort. Commit to yourself and choose your heaven wisely.

It seems to echo the beliefs and hopes of the period which is ironically needed now more than ever. Even in the seeming abundance of love is the unwillingness to try. Like it or not, this year 2020 will mark the beginning of something…we might not know for sure but don’t ignore the signs. Start establishing your networks, diversifying income, learning survival skills and generally being self sufficient. Looking to the next decade or century, what hope and dreams will still be alive and which will be abandoned? Who will survive the appocalypse and who will conquer…
