“But that was a long time and no matter how I try
The years just flow by like a broken down dam.” ~ John Prine
The breakneck speed of time’s passing scares the crap out of me. How could it possibly be Tuesday already, February already? 2015 sounds like a scifi year. How in the world could I be 50?
My alarm, I think, inclines me to plan and schedule myself silly. To take the thread of time and (in my mind, anyway) neatly ball it up into my hand.
Actually, though, I just need to hold the thread lightly and be here.
