Y is for Youth

It is not just for those that are young in years. Anyone can have their youth at any age. It is actually just a matter of how you feel. I mean there are days that I feel like I've lived more than a century and then there are days that I feel as if I were still in my teens and have the energy to match.

While growing up means gaining responsibilities, some of which you never imagined it does not have to mean losing the enjoyment of youth. Actually it can sometimes mean that you get to enjoy things that you were never able to during your younger years because of a lack of money or simply not being allowed to do them.

Children keep you young even as they test the level of your endurance. It can be tiring to spend the day running with them but it makes it easier for you to sleep at night, and you awake feeling refreshed. Keeping youth is not about keeping your youthful figure (though it is a bonus) but about living life freely and following your dreams instead of someone else's dreams for you.

Here's hoping that youth finds you at any age.

The statue was becoming discolored from the rain, green and blue blotches were everywhere. Frustration was taking its toll on the artist as he tried to match the original color with only an ounce left in the can. The feedback on the original concept had been mixed at best and now the rains had left him with a disaster threatening his career.

“No, it’s too hot.”
“You’re delusional, it’s fine.”
“Not it’s too hot.”
“It’s a tub of ice. It is a reach to say it is hot.”
She walked away and left him sitting there to think about what he was actually trying to say.

Flash in the Pan: Regress

Up, down, right, left.
The motion was making his hands numb but he was determined beat the game once and for all. The idea that he could not make it to the end of the level by the time they called him to dinner was unacceptable.
“Is that all he does all day, at 40?”
“What caused him to regress?”
“He knows he’s dying.”
What is he dying from would cause him to regress? Is he actually regressing or simply in denial?
