One step forward, two steps back

once upon ago

times were jaunty and carefree

the earth full of smiles

change stands on the edge of time

social dice roll to and fro

  1. You’ve captured the current zeitgeist, all right: one step forward and two steps back.

  2. Each generation can tell you pluses and minuses…
    Now we are in a backward slide. Even with all our modern progress we slip slide away.

  3. Nice line: “change stands on the edge of time”

  4. And the times haven’t always changed for the better have they…

  5. And, the world’s gone, backwards, instead of, forward, in, so many, ways right now.

  6. Nicely done Eugenia

  7. I loved this, it mirrored the past perfectly

  8. I guess change always stands at the edge of time.

  9. If only those who determine the ethos of the times could learn from the past

  10. Nicely done 🙂 Happy July to you Eugenia.

  11. You’ve captured the current time perfectly.

    Have a fabulous day and weekend, Eugenia. Big hug. ♥

  12. There have always been problems, but it does seem that this era is particularly problematic!

  13. Nice take.

  14. When happiness of the world comes to in a few hands, they forget their responsibilities, use it for their own purposes, people are no more happy.
    If we took back our happiness in our own hearts and hands, world will be happy again.
