Signs of Life


I saw my future today. The younger generation is being warned that I may be taking a stroll on the same sidewalk where they walk and talk mindlessly on cell phones.

“Watch out for Lois! She is walking in your vicinity. Make sure you don’t knock her over.”

I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry when I saw this sign on the boardwalk next to the boating docks behind my Miami condo.

There is an apartment building a few doors down that is dedicated to senior living. Seriously, this sign is a courtesy for them, but in a blink of an eye it will be for me.

  1. Sorry to tell you, but it was you about 5 years ago. That you are only noticing now is a sign of your delayed reaction time.

  2. That might be what this time of life is all about: getting ourselves ready for the fact that we’ll soon be walking in our parents’ (or grandparents’) shoes. Doesn’t make it any less sobering, though! šŸ™‚
