Time

The world changes so much and still so little in one lifetime.

Only when it’s nearly over do we realize how sacred time was.

Obligations desensitize us, moments begin to pass quickly as we forget what is important.

We no longer seek the things that move us, because they require time to stand still.

We begin to place importance on things that can burn to dust. Things that appear to be full but are empty.

What moves you? What fills you with wonder?

Is it a wildflower on a far away mountain that you are fortunate enough to see as you pass through once?

Is it the profound view of the sky that you see from the plane as you fly off somewhere new?

Because all of this is happening to you.
