Mr. In-Between

Have you ever felt like you were sitting out side of everything?  Always watching and never really part of any of it. That is how I felt for as long as I can remember.  When I was growing up there was a song by someone you’ve probably never heard of.  HIs name was Burl Ives and this song he sang seemed to be talking about me (even though he was singing about a man).  The name of it was Mr In-between.  I seemed to be, always too young for one thing but too old for another.  To old to play, too young to date.  I was too inexperienced for one job, but over qualified for another.

I could go on but I think you get the point.  Today some of that has changed, almost, by the internet.  Although I admit I am still left with the feeling of being somewhat like Mr. In-between.  My friends on one side are retired, many bored and others just plain tired. Other whom I tell what I am doing  can’t for the life of them understand why I would be interested in any thing to do with the internet.  Many of them can barely email and find Facebook mind boggling.  Other use the internet, but mostly for games or quick connect on Group Facebook Pages.  Which I find as a great place find out what the rest of them are doing.  On the other side a lot  of my friends are 10 to 15 years younger than I and they are amazed that I would not only have a website, but web stores and write books.    So there I am once again, in between the been there done that and the want to do and need to do that.

If the truth be known many things on the internet are a challenge for me, but giving in and giving up has never been part of my  nature.  I  struggle to get my site looking the way I want it.  I struggle with adding links, I struggle even more with understanding  how to get people to my sites.  Heck at times I can’t even remember how to get to some site I was on yesterday.  So I remain some where in between and that’s okay.  As long as I able to keep on keeping on, I’m good with it.

My wish for you is that you too will continue with what ever it is that interests you, because the minute you give up and give in to the “too old for that” notion your enjoyment of life will decline, no matter what your age is.

Take listen to the song, see how you feel.
