Time

May 11, 2010

Time is an interesting thing.  Just when you think you’ve got it under control, and you understand how it works it changes on you.  I’m at a crossroads with that fickle creature time.

Why is that some moments seem to last an eternity, while others slip by so fast you miss them completely.  How do days turn into months and years without you ever realizing it.  How did they slip by so quickly when those days seemed like they would never end?  Why do some hours of the day disappear in a blink while others drag on and on.

I don’t know the answer to any of these questions.  But it seems that right now I am like the girl in the picture.  Watching time swing this way and that before me, just wondering when I’ll find it.  Maybe tomorrow.  Yes, maybe tomorrow.

I certainly don’t want to be in fear all the time just so I can have more hours in my day, but it is something to think about.
