Quiet Neighborhood

It only seemed like yesterday when our dads were physically very strong and so active, the neighborhood kids were always around and our street was so busy. Now, all the small kids are emailing college graduation announcements, all the dads seem to have retired, my childhood friends have left to build their own families. Only a handful of us remain in the neighborhood.

There’s a saying that go, “From the cradle to the grave is but a day!” I cannot agree with it any less.
