its been this way for the last several years... I used have an array of different tones & cadences, but such variety seems to have long since passed... I used to enjoy the uniqueness of each event, but now they've simply become passÃ© ...They've become little more than one of a handful of methods I turn to, to alleviate a stomach-ache. What are some of the the simple joys in life that have since escaped you, as you progress in age ??
