Can there be anything more precious than time?
This morning I awoke earlier than I normally have these past two weeks. No headache, actually limited aches in general- content in the knowing that I am ready to go back to work. For that reason, I am enjoying the tree lights and and relaxing in the quiet.
While I have questions about 2022, they are not urgent. They needn’t be anyway as what’s to be done? Instead I am valuing the time I have, this day, at home, surrounded by what and whom I love.
The wish to stop time is perhaps the dream of many; I know I have wanted to in the past. But, I no longer desire to disrupt the natural order of things as I know what it’s like to be at a stand still with others living their lives around you. It was terrifying.
Who was it that said If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward? Ah yes, another king- Martin Luther King Jr.
I say bring on time’s movement. It’s not that fast that you cannot enjoy the everyday motion around you.
Yours in spirit,
