Those of you, who read “Wordsmith Desk” on a regular basis, know that I have a new theme. The previous theme, “Chalkboard” was neat, but the format was a bit tight and words and sentences were breaking where they shouldn’t. That bothered this former printer/graphic designer and the writer within wasn’t too happy, either. I can’t even begin to express how it messed with my “Type A”.
So, the new theme is “2014”. Timely, considering we are almost there. I remember back in those “chalkboard days” how 2014 sounded very “Flash Gordon.” I couldn’t even imagine such a year. It was the 40’s and that was comfortable…the way a year should be. I sure didn’t want to think about any 2014.
To my disappointment or maybe, my surprise, here I am…just around the corner from 2014. You have no idea how old that makes me feel. The “good old days” are behind me now. Someday, someone will call “2014” the good old days…I don’t see how, but they will.
Who knows, they may even talk about those ancient “chalkboard days.” They’ll shake their heads and wonder how we ever managed. I will feel sad for them, for they will have no idea what they missed.
“To everything there is a season…”
