Out of Time

We're getting ready for my better half's physical therapy and I intend to walk while he does his exercises. It is a hot day but I will be mostly in the shade. If it's really too hot, after I walk awhile I'll go inside and read in the cooI while I wait. I'm reading a book titled "Out of Time" by Helen Schulman. It's a little different than my usual reading. It's about a boy who was killed in an accident. His family members and friends go back in time remembering him from their own point of view. It's interesting how they all remember him so differently. It makes me think of how our family and friends will remember us. They will remember us from their own perspective and I wonder what it will be. I had never considered that before. I think I learn something from most everything I read. Do you find it so?

We haven't had much rain of late and they tell us we're going into a drought. I don't know which is worse too little rain or too much.

@RubyHawk Less rain you may be able to water your plants, but too much rain like we have over here now, nothing much can be done.

Yes I do. I never thought of that. Interesting.

it's interesting to me to think about how people look at the same thing and see it differently.

@RubyHawk I watched a cop show once where the police captain staged a shooting in the department unknown to all the other people there. The reason was to see what everyone saw since they were all witnesses. What they found was that no two people saw what happened the same way.

I really do think that our family members will all have a different take on our own dear selves. My sister and I have different takes regarding our brother, mother and father.

My sisters and brother remember things differently, and it's weird since we were raised pretty much alike and experienced the same things.

I read mostly history and bios, so I definitively learn something new every day.

Any kind of reading is good, I like everything but I especially like books that make me think about things that never occurred to me before.

I love reading. But strangely enough, the album I was listening to this morning before I went to work is called 'Out of Time'

I know what you mean, they might not remember me either.

I would wonder that as well being that I see people differently from most others I know.

That's true, sometimes we like people that others can't abide and sometimes the other way around. I suppose no people are born just alike.

This would be very interesting. Vince and I often have different memories and interpretations on various things that have happened. I can understand that people would be remembered in different ways too.

I read mostly magazines now. I like to think I still learn something from my Woman's World magazine.
