    Seasons Change and So Do I

    It seems like only yesterday that I was just a child wide-eyed with wonder. Then quickly came the chaotic and yet wondrous teen years. Twenties came and went along with my thirties...and come spring I will be 50. So many changes and challenges throughout the years, turning me...

    My Story. Ever since I was a kid I was always

    told that I have an old soul. I was never interested in things that kids my age were obsessed with. I've always had a sense of growing up and getting older that I couldn't explain. When I was 8 years old, I had that moment of knowing that my parents would eventually grow older...

    Let Time Pass, Just Not Without You.

    This second was now just seconds ago, and I will never get that second back. It is a sick thing to think about. One of those things I cannot understand, and if I try, the seconds will run out before I get to a conclusion. We shouldn't sit around wasting our time, because our time...

    Ben Harper - Walk Away lyrics Oh no- here comes that sun again.  That means another day without you my friend. And it hurts me to look into the mirror at myself. And it hurts even more to have to be with somebody else. And it's so hard to do and so easy to say...

    Slipping Away

    I never really noticed how fast it goes by.I am nowhere near where I thought I would be by now.Time is spent and gone. I am unable to retrieve it.I am here today and that is how I live.No more looking back; it only reminds me.Time is not on my side.

    I felt really strange today.  My 16 year old came home today with his classes for next year, he will be in grade 12.  He was telling me how this is his last year and he wants to go to all the graduation events with his girlfriend and all his best friends. ...

    Growing Older

    Life has felt differently lately. I am sensing the impermanence of it all. Nothing lasts forever, it’s the nature of life. We are born, we grow old, and we die. It’s the way of life.  I am watching my children grow and I am saddened. I wish I...

    When did my hands become my father's hands?

    I remember his hands, though I've not seen them now in nearly 20 years. It was a bit startling to look down one day and see them again. When did the creases at the corner of my eyes become his? When did my thoughts become so reminiscent? When did my voice and words become...

    Does the passing of time ever float around in

    Good things come, then they're destroyed.

    Time passes and you're stuck with the "what use to be" going on in your head. The "now" just sucks. But, there's nothing you can do besides continuing on faking away. Until you've had enough and just can't anymore.
