Gosh, it's been eons since I posted. A lot has changed, including the seasons.
It's amazing how fast time goes by...
and how, right before our eyes...
all that was old is new again (except me.... I'm still the same-- I don't know why that 'old is new again' stuff doesn't work on people)
The color and lushness is all around us~
All we have to do is look and listen to know how things are changing every minute, how nothing in nature is static, not even us. When we least expect it, we realize we are in a different place, a different mindset, a different season.
Take a lesson courtesy of "Bunny" here (yes, he's obviously a cat, but what you don't see is that he has a bobbed tail and looks sort of like a bunny-- okay, well whatever)
Don't get so focused and busy that you lose time-- your time--in the process of 'living.'
Far greater minds than mine (and Bunny's) have realized that no matter how similar it looks, we'll never have this time back again. There will be more blackberries to pick, more lawns to mow, and more wisteria to swoon over.
But just as the seasons change, so will we. And we'll see and experience things differently the 'next time.'
