When you look at me, you see the past.
When I look at you, I see the future and
Feel good about things to come.

We planned our August road trip to be in the Richmond area for Audrey’s 13th birthday —
I collect moments.

“I close my eyes
Only for a moment,
then the moment’s gone
All my dreams
Pass before my eyes, a curiosity

Same old song
Just a drop of water in an endless sea
All we do
Crumbles to the ground,
though we refuse to see

Now, don’t hang on
Nothing lasts forever
but the earth and sky
It slips away
And all your money
won’t another minute buy

Dust in the wind
All we are is dust in the wind.”

— Kerry Livgren, guitarist in the band Kansas

We arrived in Short Pump in the late afternoon on August 13th, where we would spend the next three days with Jason and family. 

Short Pump is a suburb of Richmond, Virginia. The population was 24,729 at the 2010 census. 

This posting is the second of three that will be shared of our stay in Short Pump.

our new grandchildren Cayla and Cayden.

Our human condition makes us tend to share

only the best of ourselves,

because we are always searching

for love and approval.

Don’t even get her nectaled

But safety pins and bassinets

Await the girl who fascinets.

“Listen to the mustn’ts, child. Listen to the don’ts.

Listen to the shouldn’ts, the impossibles, the won’ts.

Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me…

Anything can happen, child.

Anything can be.”

Shakespeare’s Sonnet 3: ‘Look in thy glass’

Look in thy glass and tell the face thou viewest
Now is the time that face should form another;
Whose fresh repair if now thou not renewest,
Thou dost beguile the world, unbless some mother.
For where is she so fair whose uneared womb
Disdains the tillage of thy husbandry?
Or who is he so fond will be the tomb
Of his self-love, to stop posterity?
Thou art thy mother’s glass and she in thee
Calls back the lovely April of her prime;
So thou through windows of thine age shalt see,
Despite of wrinkles, this thy golden time.
But if thou live, remembered not to be,
Die single and thine image dies with thee.

Xplor Park In The Mayan Jungle   Leave a comment

Xplor-9-72.jpgOne of our family group experiences while at Playa del Carmen was spending a day at Xplor Park.
Climbing all the zip-line towers in the heat and humidity was a challenge.
But, we were able to cool off in the underground river activities.
