Time Stands Still
I took this photo the other day. I came across these cool clocks when I was wandering around aimlessly as I often do. I cleaned up some funky spots in Photoshop and threw it up on Flickr, mostly because I liked the capture. Dale commented that he is eagerly awaiting the blog post to go along with the photo. Uh oh. I didn't actually have a post in mind. The truth is I have a bit of blogger's block, I suppose. Lately I am thinky thinky, not posty posty.
Dale's call to write and the photo got me thinking about time. I feel like time is my enemy. You know the story. Work obligations, family obligations, all of the life maintenance a mom has to take care of every day. It adds up. When I feel time pressure the first thing I let go is me. I don't exercise enough. I grab a quick dinner or don't eat at all. I miss dental appointments, don't go to the doctor when I should. I don't think I am alone in this -- right?
Neglecting the things that are important catches up with us eventually. A friend of mine always says this life is not a dress rehearsal. We don't get to live these days over and try to be better the next time around. We need to act on our intentions. So, I guess I will see you later. I am off to the gym.
