  •  Well.... (0+ / 0-)

    When I think back, I'm not sure the 'me of then' would agree on many things with the 'me of now'.  There are many of my attributes that have remained steadfastly the same, but time has tempered me.  I am far more tolerant of some things and far less tolerant of others.  I have also become more outspoken about injustices....something the 'me of then' would have felt but would have definitely been mortified to do.  I'm old, and I don't suffer jackasses kindly.  I'm not mean or unkind, but if presented with willful ignorance, bigotry, racism or cruel foolishness, I respond.
    I have friends from when I was the 'me of then' and there are times I just think....would I actually be friends with them if I met them now?  In some cases, astoundingly yes, in other cases, absolutely not.

    I think, therefore I am........................... Plus ca change, plus c'est la meme chose....AKA Engine Nighthawk - don't even ask!
