Seventy years brings about a lot of change — Was this guy thinking about change, his role in it, and enjoying your company in the future? The answer is NO! But, I was thinking about malls the other day – Then, some thoughts about change just flew into my head. So, I gathered up some
….. photos (including the featured photo) and wrote a little about some change – then and now .
And that lead me to think–Oh, for you Grandkids, it is not about then and now — It is about now and beyond — What fun changes will you create as a base for your beyond generations. Sure hope you will have fun creating! I also, hope you do it safely, in a smart way, and in your own way — so that the future will say you were a WOW person.
Go tell your parents to be kind to you, because you will be creating the world they live in – in their old age. You see, your parents generation is creating my old age world. Even with the House and Senate debates – my life around here is pretty good – so tell your parents, thanks for me. OK?
Time passes and things change. My Grandpa is not here today to purchase a mare and harness. But through his daily labors of many years ago, he left a beautiful homestead that the family of many still, after 110 years, call the homestead.
This beautiful buck has left but a relic, his beautiful rack lying among the down branches, but in the morning, on the Island, I am likely to see an offspring of his swimming across the bay – returning from a trip to the other shore, defending his right to begin the creation of future generations for my offsprings to enjoy.
In 1968 THE LEDGER reported:
By Gary White
TITUSVILLE | The 1968 brochure beckoned to would-be business owners in language intoxicated with the exuberance of its era.
Miraculous Profits Await You in Miracle City Inc. – Titusville, Florida. …the largest and most modern shopping center in the fastest growing area in the country. …Miracle City is a 330,000-square-foot, air-conditioned mall as modern as the space age activities of its neighbors.
TITUSVILLE, Fla. — 2013
Eyewitness News has new pictures of what an empty shopping mall will look like when it’s redeveloped.
WFTV found out about the $60 million plans to revitalize Titusville’s Miracle City Mall last fall.
Developer Allen Goins shared renderings of his project.
The open-air mall would encompass 300,000 square feet and would likely include restaurants, retail shops, and a movie theater.
The new mall is seen as a focus of north Brevard’s revitalization efforts. Could this be a rendition of the future?
So, say I to you –things will change – To my Grandkids I say –Look forward to that change — Better yet – Look forward to creating that change — Some watch change happen, others make change happen, others say what the hell happened. Be the one in the middle – make change happen. 🙂
