This Week's Gallery is 'Old'.

I was in Norfolk this weekend. It was lovely and peaceful but also very slow.  Where we go, the Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham, the other visitors are predominately retired. 

Both HWMBO and I had spent time in London last week working and going from that pace to Noooooooorrrrrrrfolk pace a Norfolk retired pace at that is initially quite frustrating.  It took me a while to slow myself down to the point where I could walk behind the old(er) people and enjoy it.

The Little Boy and the Old Man  Shel Silverstein

Said the little boy, "Sometimes I drop my spoon."
Said the old man, "I do that too."
The little boy whispered, "I wet my pants."
I do that too," laughed the little old man.
Said the little boy, "I often cry."
The old man nodded, "So do I."
But worst of all," said the boy, "it seems
Grown-ups don't pay attention to me."
And he felt the warmth of a wrinkled old hand.
I know what you mean," said the little old man.”
