SATURDAY MORNING COMING DOWN

It’s Saturday morning, grey and overcast.  No sun yet.  It evokes in me feelings from the song, Sunday Morning Coming Down – nostalgia and hung over, feelings of  a misspent youth, and memories of early university days.

Yes, those days were somewhat misspent but not wasted.  No, I never finished and got a degree.  But it was an education all the same.  And it was fun in a painful sort of way.  I got to explore the world, getting lost and found and lost again but not forever.  I got to taste the bitter along with the sweet.  I discovered I had appeal but never believed it.

I was a fool and a saint.  I was an innocent and innocent of the fact.  Someone up there looked after me!  And I came out alright.

It is Saturday morning and it is snowing tiny snow flakes.  Enough of nostalgia and wallowing in memories.  On with the day.  Forward, march!

About hafong

Hello! My name is (Leung) Hafong alias Lily Leung. You always say the last name first….that is the Chinese way. That is my partner lurking behind me. Since this is my blog, I won’t mention his name. But this is a rather cool picture. You see me and yet you don’t…sort of the way I feel about myself most of my life. So this blog is a self-exploration, an archeology dig of some sort. My tools…..words of a thousand or so at a sitting. I will try for that.

    Nostalgia and memories are good, and it’s rather comforting to wallow in them for a time. Thanks for sharing!
