I’m locked into old habits
The world is spinning fast
Hopefully not off its axis
And I am embracing the past
Tried and true
Is it an aging thing
Or something else ?
Here’s my list:
I still buy books, need the physical touch
Still write checks, never giving that up
Listen to music on a portable CD player, mega bass
Wear vintage wind-up watches, no battery to replace
Been using the same bottle opener for 38 years
My land line phone is intact and working with clarity
Don’t get me wrong, I’ve got the new stuff too, I’m as
electronic as anybody. And embrace the technology. But
traditions remain, time tested and true
