I think I'm goin' back
to the things I learned so well in my youth.
I think I'm returning to those days
when I was young enough to know the truth.
Now there are no games to only pass the time.
No more electric trains, no more trees ro climb.
Thinking young and growing older is no sin
and I can play the game of life to win.
Now there's more to do than watch my sailboat glide
And every day can be my magic carpet ride.
A little bit of courage is all we lack
so catch me if you can, I'm goin' back.
Well, my friends...enjoying this short return to my youth on these drugs has not been quite the magic carpet ride I had hoped. Of course, if something seems too good to be true, it probably is! Late last night we were sitting on the couch reading and doing computer work. It was very quiet. Then the phone rang. It startled me quite a bit and made me jump. This has never happened before, it's probably because I'm in a hightened state now. But that started my heart palpitating and going out of rhythm. I have a history of harmless palpitations from time to time, but these have not gone away yet. It doesn't really worry me, it's just my little fountain of youth pills making it worse than usual. How tiresome! I have a good friend who has had this for a long time, and she holds her breath or breathes into a bag. So I suppose I'll try that tomorrow if I need to. I saw this beautiful new moon tonight and thought how appropriate it is for me at this time...now if you'll excuse me, I think I'll go find the jacks and pick-up-sticks in the toy box, a nice distraction. Oh, and please, no calls after midnight!!
