Freezing and other thoughts well in the Dentist chair

Just returned from the dentist where I had a filling which was leaking fixed. I have not had any dental work for about two years with any freezing so I as I type, my mouth or at least the left side of my mouth, my lips and my tongue are still frozen. It is an interesting sensation as the freezing starts to wear off and the tingling sensation creep into my consciousness.  The Dentist is friendly, as is his assistant, I was in and out of there in about 20 minutes with a precaution not to eat for about an hour. I can do that, yesterday I went for blood tests and made the mistake of not going in the morning. I was required to fast for 10 hours before the appointment, but I was not able to get in until the late afternoon. The receptionist, when she calculated the time I had been fasting was surprised that I had fasted for 20 hours. I. I talked about this before, I was moving on slow down time and it gave me pause to think about the people who have no choice in when they eat. We are very lucky in Canada but we forget sometimes how lucky we are.

As I was sitting in the Dentists chair, the Dental Hygienist said, I think I was born in the wrong generation, I love my parents music--she was of course talking about my generations music. Our music touched our soul and still touches our children and our grandchildren soul. I think because the music of the boomers was trying to find out who we were and what we valued. The music did not just talk to the right or to the left, but reached us all.
