MAKE IT A GREAT DAY: Coronation Day

It’s May 6th and the ceremonious sounds in Westminster Abby are sounding throughout The Haasienda as I prepare for my marathon day that will end when I return at 11:55 PM, tonight.

A student asked if I had seen Queen Elizabeth’s coronation… umm, that was in 1953 and I was born in 1964. I mentioned that this would be my first and only coronation to observe. However, as Laura and I were discussing it the other evening, it is possible that we might be around for William’s coronation since Charles will turn 75 this November.

When Queen Victoria died in 1901, King Edward VII was fifty-nine and reigned for nine years, dying at age sixty-eight. The British monarchy has repeated history with the long life and reign of another queen to be followed by an aged son.

It will be interesting to see how this chapter of Britain’s history will play out.

I am eager to charge into the day, but I am aware that I need to greatly pace myself. These longer days increase my daily steps from an average of 6,000-7,000 to between 10,000 and 12,000. I like that I am getting so many steps in each day.

It’s moving in at 6:40 AM and I want to enjoy a bit of the coronation while relaxing a bit.

Make it a great day!
