This week’s post will be quick, because Mercury being retrograde has made my technology very temperamental, and I don’t want to risk writing a long post just to have the laptop freeze or internet crash…SO, let’s get to it, shall we??

If you’ve every seen the Iconic 1983 cult movie sensation The Outsiders, based on the S.E. Hinton novel of the same name, then you have heard my favorite Robert Frost poem. Here it is to refresh your memory:

Stay Gold #WednesdayWisdom

It’s lovely, and simple…and it’s full of bittersweet wisdom. I always liked how Johnny Cade reflected on the poem after hearing Ponyboy recite it…but, I guess when you’re stranded in the burn unit with a broken back you’ve got a lot of time to think. He explains the important message held within Frost’s words in his final letter to Pony. In it he says:

“I’ve been thinking about it, and that poem, that guy that wrote it, he meant you’re gold when you’re a kid, like green. When you’re a kid everything’s new, dawn. It’s just when you get used to everything that it’s day. Like the way you dig sunsets, Pony. That’s gold. Keep that way, it’s a good way to be.” 

So, that’s it. Stay Gold, everyone…it’s a good way to be.
