It is good that you can still have that feeling....it is only the outside that changes I dont think the inside changes all that much.

Last week, I drove past the house where we lived when I was a young child.  The neighborhood's a bit sketchy now, but it's hanging in there.  There's a big birch tree in the front yard.  I remember when my dad planted that tree; it was around 1965.

Never would have imagined it Sam, but once you say it, it fits.

OTOH you are still a first place sprinter, look at you go  Wink

Isn't that the oddest thing.  You get the sense of bellonging and alienation at the same time.  Years ago when I went back to my childhood home in England that was what struck me too - the tree my father planted.

Perhaps everyone of us should plant a tree...

i so agree, QPO. and IME... if one really desire it... there's much that can be reclaimed in life, if it's still there within desiring expression.

not in my case with that particular memory. but it's a fond memory all the same. Smiley

I remebember the strange experience of having a fever during chicken pox or german measles whilst my parents were on holiday abroad. My grandmother was looking after me, and I recall that strange experience of seeing everything as if through the wrong end of a telescope, and sometimes now it seems to me i long for that distance between me and the world.

seems to me you need to hang out in a zen retreat for a while...
I wonder if they let you bring your nearest and dearest....

My mom was 8 months pregnant (and having difficulties) when I came down with mumps.  My mom couldn't recall for sure that she had ever had mumps, and her and my dad didn't have time to care for me at that point anyway, so I had to get sent off to my grandmother's house for several weeks.  Then, when I came back, I had a baby brother. 

My mom has a brother who is 11 years younger than her.  I recall when he was in college.  He used to spend the summers with us, working an internship for a local company and sleeping on the couch in our den.  Our house didn't have central air conditioning; we had two window units.  Back then, these ran off of 220V power (there had to be a circuit put in at the window where they were to go) and they were very heavy.  One of my uncle's jobs, when his spring term ended, was to come up and help my dad put the air conditioners in the window.  Then he'd come back sometime during fall term and help take them back out.
