A Haiku - Relativity

Keeping it all within the family....

Everything is relative.  Come to think of it, you and I are, too!

Adam and Eve never guessed what they started!


"I'm my own Grampaw."

Words of a song sung back then;

Meant to be funny.


Now that I'm older,

It isn't that funny now,

Having Grampa's joints!


Odd song to recall,

Yet, comforting it sure is

...thoughts clearer than his!

Voted up. Since we are talking about relativity thought I'd pass on this funny quote I stumbled upon. lol

In 1905 Albert discovered Relativity, in 1906 he invented Rock and Roll.

Yahoo Serious

Looking forward to your next hub.

Gypsy Rose Lee: I ran across an interesting definition for the term "relativity of knowlege". It will make you think about the limits of your thinking: "The doctrine that knowledge is relative to the limited nature of the mind and the conditions of knowing and hence not true to the nature of independent reality." Save that one for a Sunday!

frogyfish: I'm workng to avoid the aches my Mom has at 103.5 years of youthfulness. If her only complaint is a shoulder that hurts every time she moves it, I can sympathize, but marvel at the same time!

flashmakeit: Some regular glucosamine, chondroitin, and hyaluronic acid seems to keep my joints happy. I'll bet you enjoyed the song's lyrics! Have a blessed sabbath.
