Oh yeah, I’m feelin’ it!!
And what is “it” …you’re wondering, huh?!
You kinda need to know what “it” is before answering my initial question, eh?!
“It” is other than a big sneeze, though my allergies are acting up…among other things acting up…
the daily PRESS-URE IS ON!!! (pressure can also be subtle, seductive gradualism aka erosion)

A grandpa who doesn’t require you to sit on his lap and doesn’t care if you’re naughty or nice before passing out presents. A “real” wise grandpa plants trees and avoids centuries of cutting customs that endanger your breathing and/or the health of our planet. The kind of grandpa that is always in town to help and doesn’t just show up for a party or a cookie.
(Personally, I enJOY learning a lot from older folks/elders with years of living wisdom/experience to help us younger folks..not sure ? how old he/the smart grandfatherly above-mentioned speaker is… 80′s+?) I took some hieroglyphics…trying to decipher my notes to share an interesting point or …
