It’s 10 days since I last had a thought

It’s weird. I’ve noticed an increase in blogs about change. Young people do not recognise change. What happens is that they grow older. But we don’t think we are any older. Then quite suddenly everything seems to have changed!

I was thinking that the other night when I saw Margaret Thatcher on the telly. An old frail woman.  What a change from the person in the 80’s who I thought was to blame for some  of the horrible changes to peoples lives.

And the media is transfixed these days by dates and numbers and anniversaries. Just watched Football Focus and they have a wee man on it who is 90 today. Why is in when  he’s 90, not 80 or 70.

The Berlin Wall fell 20 years ago. Here’s a good description of the media focus on numbers

So in summary, things don’t seem to change very much at all, as we struggle along, noses to the grindstone. Then you take a moment to look up and gaze around, and all of a sudden everything’s different!

Big changes in springburn tonight. And I feel so old. The Sighthill Flats are being blown up tonight!! Well at least 2 of them…..I remember when they were being built in the 60’s!! How depressing!  

I’ll be talking about outside toilets and big keys soon!
