Currie's Gratitude 26 September 2014

Sometimes I feel like if you just watch things, just sit still and let the world exist in front of you - sometimes I swear that just for a second time freezes and the world pauses in its tilt. Just for a second. And if you somehow found a way to live in that second, then you would live forever.    [Lauren Oliver, Pandemonium]

Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world's great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs.   [Norman Maclean, A River Runs Through It and Other Stories]

Time really is rather illusive. And yet we KNOW  certainly it exists. But we are never in more than this one nanosecond of it. I suppose I am thinking about Time a lot lately.

I am aware of Time’s preciousness. Its possibilities. Even its impossibilities.

And another thing about Time is this internet stuff. Our advancing technology makes it possible for weird and BEautimous Time to almost fade to black. And yet, truly, it’s always THERE.

I love how bizarre and unwieldy Time can BE. And NOT BE.

And Time with YOU especially much.

I love you, Currie

Good morning!! Haven't been on lately...had to had some emergency dental
surgery that put me down and out of it for several days... You don't realize how much junk mail you get until you don't open your email for 3 or 4 days and there set 400 plus emails waiting to be sorted and purged...Sending you love and strength this fine day.

It amazes me how sometimes time can seem like it takes forever to go by and yet I look at my son and it seems like just yesterday he was a babe in my arms and that was almost 40 years ago. Time seems quite relative. ;)
