I spent all day yesterday helping my parents clean out their house, as they are getting ready to move to another country. •
I made my way through keepsakes from the past 34 years of my life. Old love notes, photos, Halloween costumes, prom dresses, favorite stuffed animals... I couldn’t stop thinking about how quickly the time went. •
Last night, all I could think about was my childhood. The smallest moments that, now in retrospect, are the biggest. The hot summer days, staring at the clouds, watching them shape-shift, for example. I remember fantasizing about what was on the other side of childhood. The longing... for things to be different... •
If only I had known how fleeting all of this would be. I don’t regret those thoughts because they were part of my experience. And, it’s normal to daydream...But, it leaves me wondering... is the answer to life as simple as PRESENCE? We spend all this TIME trying to get somewhere, trying to achieve something... Maybe we are really just supposed to slow down and watch the clouds shape-shift. .
