I Wish I Could Capture Time In A Bottle

It's hard to believe that we are already three months into 2010. It seems that only last week we were celebrating Christmas.  Another year is going by so quickly.  The older I get the more I wonder why time simply vanishes before my eyes. When I was a kid I couldn’t wait for time to pass.  I wanted to learn to ride a bike without training wheels, then I wanted to drive, and then I couldn’t wait to go to college. I can’t believe I was wishing my time away, dreaming of being older when now I frequently dream of my younger years when it was much simpler.  I dream of the things I planned to accomplish with that youthful mind and wonder where all the time went.  Once I would take my time finishing that assignment or spending carefree days but now I find time has taken me.  Sometimes I wish I could slow down the hands of time and savor the here and now for just a little bit longer.  Instead in some ways I look at time as my enemy because it keeps ticking by until one day there will be no more time allotted for me.

This song explains exactly how I feel in my life right now. I am so excited but there is never enough time. You are the one I want to spend my time with.

I consider my diaries a huge blessing for that reason.

I feel ya. And what's worse, I have lost a lot of memories of my younger days. I should've kept my diaries!

Or as David Bowie says:<br />
Time - He flexes like a *****<br />
Falls wanking to the floor<br />
His trick is you and me, boy<br />
(But I am like you FG: I prefer the Jim Croce version)
