More time with my family

The Elston Gunnn

Hello again. My name is Elston.

I’ve been spending a lot of time with my family recently. I’ve been wondering about life and all that, and I already am in the process of selling my home and moving back to Florida. I’ve been hanging with my niece and nephew, and they’re very much of the “Carpe Diem” Mentality. They’ve been having me try all sorts of stuff.

I recently got bubbly for the first time in several years when they suggested that I smoke some shisha from their hookah. At first, I thought they were just joking with me then they took me to their favorite smoke shop in Hollywood, and we bought some. I didn’t know what to think of at first, but I breathed it just like how I would smoke cigarettes during the war, but this came out tasting just like a Carolina peach. While the flavor alone was a delight I didn’t expect, the head high I received afterward is the stuff of dreams.

I’ve been working harder on claiming my life nowadays. I’ve spent so much time thinking about the world and the one that I’m leaving behind that I don’t want to be remembered as an agent of death. I want to inspire some lives with these old bones of mine. I want my family to know that I loved them and that everything is going to be okay because grandpa took care of it before passing.

I feel like I’m a dying generation, but I don’t know what my generation even stood for. People are so concerned with baby boomers and Gen-Xers that it’s as I’ve already passed but why do I have to live in this world without creating only taking away and I don’t want that to be the legacy that I leave behind.

For those of you too slow to figure it out. I did see the doctor, and he had some unfortunate news. I think I’ll be okay, but I’d rather be safe and get all my ducks in a row and square away my family. So that’s what’s going on with me. I’m enjoying my life, and I hope that I can get back to you folks some day. But until then I’ll be signing off early today, I think I’ll watch the sunrise.
