Life has many turns, and strange paths, Who may lead us on strange places, at different points in our lives.

There is nothing like old age to reach a point of reflection about our lives, and all the things we have gone through, and are now distant memories from a far receding past from year after year, on our dwelling through life.

Usually strikes me as odd from a lot of people, at their lack of Historical perspective, on many issues that affect us today.

I could offer many examples, but I will restrain myself from doing so, since I do not want people to start offering us, their side of their particular views, about some events that lead to controversy, and opposite views, even if sometimes I entertain myself from reading, or watching people arguing about a particular subject. It can be fun, when someone is not attacking you personally.


Divided we stand, seems to be our logo as human beings, through the plurality from our opinions. I have to confess I do argue occasionally, but only with good friends, never with strangers, except occasionally online, I do not care to make enemies, but seek new friends. Some online called trolls, or bots, seem to delight in upsetting all kinds of people, and occasionally if they do not agree with you, they may accuse you, labeling you as one.

Divided We Stand

I guess as a retired man, got a  lot of time on my hands, so I read books, and log on my computer, and surf the web, cook a meal a day, and  except for doing necessary work around the house, and small errands, near me, I am a total slacker!

As I see it, after over fifty years of working, I deserve some time off, for myself, and do as I please, or feel like. Usually now I sleep six hours at most, and go to bed late.

Slacker Reading

Maybe I should start doing some traveling? I am just lazy about the unpleasant things about traveling, and my  lack of disposition to suffer from them, and to be away from home where I have all I need. Will see, in late July made some plans with old friends to go on a trip. we will  see how that goes, if it happens.

I know this post has not much to tell, but not always, we are in the mood for lofty thoughts, or we just simply lack inspiration at the moment, we sit to write a new post.

Of lately I have notice many visits to my blog from Moldavia, thank you, and greetings to whoever its reading me, you can comment as well if your care to.

    I agree with you, especially about arguing with some one. (Other than my wife of course.} I avoid anyone I might argue with even in person or social media. The later is easy, I just unfriend them.

  2. A trip with old friends may turn out better than you may imagine 🙂

      Thank you Rosaliene, yes, we need to shake the moth as we say in Spanish: Es tiempo de sacudir la polilla! 🤣

    No, la vida no se acaba una vez se termina el trabajo, sino todo lo contrario. Ahora es el mejor momento para divertirte y dedicarte tiempo. Hay que ver la jubilación como una oportunidad para hacer lo que uno quiera, disfrutar de la etapa final de la vida sin renunciar a la vitalidad y a la calidad de vida. Pienso que el error más común es no disfrutar del merecido descanso que nos merecemos en la jubilación, una etapa muy dulce y divertida si uno aprende a relajarse y a vivir de forma plena y viajar, es una gran opción amigo. Un gran abrazo amigo.

    • theburningheart says:

      Si, tienes razon, y asi come le dije a Rasaliene, nos vamos de viaje a finales de Julio, para sacudir la polilla y gozar de la vida.
      Gracias Manuel, un abrazo y saludos desde el Noroeste de Mexico!

  4. If I look backwards on my life,Brogido, I clerarly see that from time to time it was good to leave my confort zone and do sometime different and a bit crazy! All the best with whatever you do:)

    • theburningheart says:

      Yes, Martina I am aware, and will start traveling by the end of July, God willing, going with some friends, to an event, on a city 2,651.5 k away and by chance I also have a daughter living there at the moment, so I will pay her a visit as well.😉

      • I‘am very glad for you, Brogido, that you have definitely decided for this trip and that you can also see your daughter is great. I will keep my fingers crossed for you then👏 Stay well Martina

    Hah! Sounds like we have a similar approach to retirement lifestyles. Hope your trip goes well!

    I’ll be moving in early July, once again. Be well, my friend.

    • theburningheart says:

      Thank you Debra, for your wishes, at least will take me out from my routines, and hopefully a good time with friends.
      About your move I wish you well, knowing how hard it is, the place I moved since October, it’s a nice house, the inconvenient is how far its from what I care to be, about 50 minutes drive, one way, and of course the similar time to return.
      Excuse to tell you I only go out about twice a week, when its necessary.
      Luckily I have a small market/convenience store, that carries almost everything,open 24 hours, just a block from home, and go there walking.
      Forgot to ask you, are you moving within the same city or to another town?
      On any case hope things go smooth for you Debra!

      • ptero9 says:

        Oh, I do enjoy being within walking distance of a store! I much prefer to walk whenever possible. I’m moving locally, about 2 miles from where I’m currently living.

      • theburningheart says:

        Sounds like you are OK with it, so that’s good.

    Nice planning XD I hope your trip goes well 😄

    My parents used to travel a lot and drag my brother and I with them around the US. It must have been such a chore for Mom, especially, to organize all the small details! Because I’m with you these days: I feel very lazy about traveling. The packing, remembering important things, the airport stress, then getting around once we’re in the new place…. bleh. But I hope you do it anyway, of course. Worth it, I’m sure!

    • theburningheart says:

      I guess I share a similar story with you, and many others whose parents were from different cities 491 miles apart, and my father liked to take us to visit both grandmothers, at the drop of a hat.
      And not only that, he made a living as a traveling salesman, and his route was 1,207 miles, I traveled with him on my school breaks, and on summer vacations.
      And yes, my poor Mother will be in charge of preparing the luggage of the two adults and their four children, with snacks, driving through tiny roads that crossed fifteen rivers, and numerous streams that overflowed the fragile river bridges at the time, during the season of rains, and it was difficult to wade through them, helped by local farmers with tractors or pontoons, we usually left at 3 am. or 4 a.m. and we arrived the next day after midnight, at 1 am. or 2AM
      Today you can make the trip to the furthest city in six hours and thirty-five minutes, 351 miles from the port of the city where we lived, in the other grandmother relatively close to 143 miles, but the rivers and streams are the most flooded and more difficult to ford.
      Today travel it’s a breeze compared to my childhood, yes I am that old.

  8. selizabryangmailcom says:

    That’s incredible, lol !! I’m getting up there too, but we didn’t have to cross any rivers! You clearly had a much more interesting life than I did, ha ha.

    • theburningheart says:

      I guess it makes for good anecdotes, and memories to be told, but at the time, was nothing but inconveniences, and grueling journeys, arriving caked with mud, or at least covered in dust, from head to toes, and tired, but relieved the trip was over! 😩

  9. Dalo 2013 says:

    There is something special about getting older and becoming comfortable to be lost in thought and satisfied even if nothing comes of it 🙂 But every now and then, as you are considering now, throwing a little chaos into a life (travel seemingly being the best avenue to do just this), can give the mind a whole new perspective and topics to keep you happy for quite a while 🙂 Wishing you well this summer, especially if your travel plans come to fruition.

    • theburningheart says:

      Thank you, I used to think before retiring, it will be good to do some travel, but it took me a few years to decide to do it, before there’s no more chance to do it.
      Will see how it goes, wish me well.
      Thank you Randall! 😉

  10. Hope your travels with friends gives you new inspiration for your writing! Wishing you well.

    • theburningheart says:

      Thank you we appreciate your wishes, let’s hope it will be a nice trip, to distract me from my routines.
