I Sat Down And Wrote Tiny Notes


That Was Years Ago

Now I pull them out to read

They were simple

Things I did

People I met

Conversations I had

My views and thoughts

My idea was ahead of it's time

To one day look back at that point in my life

Then to see how far I have come

Recently, I started reading my old notes

Much to my surprise

I didn't remember the time I had written them

I dated them and tried to make sense of life

The world was changing around me

I was getting older

I knew my life would never be the same

Here is a look back into my life

Through the eyes of a young boy

What was important

What mattered the most

Who was the center of my world

I did not write the best

It took time to write

Later I had my first manual typewriter

Then I moved to a Smith Corona word processor

Now we think nothing of computers

Laptops and cell phones to write our thoughts down

Come travel with me back in time

On my journey

Have fun and a few laughs

Where today I arrived with Gods help

A better and smarter man

John Hansen My notes consist of many thoughts over time. My dreams hopes and wants as well as what actually does happen. Me dealing with life and trying to change the things I don't like and loving the things I do enjoy very much. Thank you for reading and sharing the good and the bad of life. Have a good afternoon.

Chrish Canosa It is funny how we think differently at each point in our life. You should keep talking and maybe he will share some interesting thoughts. You have to know he may not be comfortable in the beginning. After awhile it will become easier and easier to talk. You can build a relationship that you will remember forever. Keep trying to show how interested you are in his life. If you share more about you he may share more about him. Thank you so much for reading and caring. Have a great afternoon.

Thanks a lot for bringing us with you!(my father is 68 years old, I always think of how my father wonder about being in that age)but I was once told to not to worry instead pour him/them with love as much as your heart can give.

And oh, my best wishes for you and your wife ...endless happiness and lots of love along the way for you two.

Enjoy the rest of the day!
