    Tags: learner drivers

    I got stuck behind a learner driver on my way home from work yesterday. I was at the back of a queue of six people wanting to turn left whilst the learner was waiting to turn right into then end of rush hour traffic.

    The cars in front of me dutifully squeezed past and went on there way. Then it was my turn. As I moved alongside the learner rather than seeing a hesitant 18 year old, I saw a hesitant woman in her forties.

    At that point any thoughts of frustration was banished from my mind and were replaced with a sense of admiration that she was still willing to try something new, to take a risk even in middle age. It would have been easy to say that I am content with my life and not move on, not reach out for something better, just to settle.

    But she didn’t. I don’t know how long it took her to turn right, not to long I hope, but I had already turned left, past Lidl and headed for home.

  7. Nostalgia

    kodzos:

    I cannot understand nostalgia.

    I think is it sheer madness to hark back to a non existent Golden Age when people could leave their back doors open, when everything was reasonable priced and when life was better and less stressful. 

    Like most other advice, it is tainted by unreliable memories. The good memories remain whilst bad fade away very quickly.

    For whatever our problems in life or society today, 2014 is the best time in recorded human history. The Human race are richer, healthier and happier than at anytime in history, there are more of us and we live longer on average. 

    Want to go back to 2000’s - Maybe you have forgotten the War of Terror?

    Maybe the 1990’s were the best time to be alive - Lets have the early 1990s recession back?

    Maybe you are longing for the 1980’s - The ever present thread of nuclear war and MAD must be your thing? 

    What about the 1970’s - Lets bring back the 3 week and the Oil crises?

    Perhaps the 1960s were the Golden decade - The time when lunch counters were divided and the slogan “If you want a Nigger for a neighbour, Vote Labour” was an election winning slogan in Britain.

    The beautiful office of the Arumjigi Culture Keepers Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving “Korean beauty,” is a wonderful combination of the traditional and modern.

    You’re told that you’re in your head too much, a phrase that’s often deployed against the quiet and cerebral. Or maybe there’s another word for such people: thinkers.
