Musing :: My Plush Palette : Sippin' on Gin and Juice

I met up with a friend this week to have some lunch as we celebrated the fact that she was born. We had lunch at the little patio styled Italian restorant just outside of the city.

She had pasta and juice. I only had water, i really really just wanted a glass of wine but as i am battling a bit of a cold lately i held off because i wasn't sure how my body would feel about alcohol while sick. With every year we all change a little when i look closely at things...My friends and i, we've move from spending birthdays dancing about and chatting about the day's planned event all morning to a quick call from the work place when the boss isn't looking and a lumch date when we can get our schedules to match up!

Just months before we were well wishing each other through surgeries, the selling of a house or a pending graduation. Change is the only constant indeed. It is swift, unplanned and always surprising if you ask me...

I still thinking growing up is a carefully marketed trap but it is one we must all buy into eventually. I think the trick is not to rush it, to be thankful while whatever stage of life we are at is happening, recognising that in that moment we are steadily traveling through time.

Peace. Love. Matching Scehdules.

  1. Happy birthday to your friend. And I think your perspective on growing up is interesting. I don't know if we all buy into it as much as we can't prevent from "growing up". But even while being responsible, we can still maintain a young heart and young perspective- or rather, the qualities that are good in children, like optimism and kindness. Somehow we have to pay the bills and the mortgage/rent, though, right? -Jess L
