Where does time go? I seem to be going to bed, to sleep, constantly. Every night I feel another day has gone, SO FAST! Maybe it is just a, end of Fall foliage, false feeling. I don't think so, though.
Thirteen years ago, after protracting prostate cancer, I decided to look at life in five year rolling increments. In doing so, I felt I would better do my passions now, rather than deferring gratification. Hard as it is, for me, to think so short term, it has helped me perceive the preciousness of the present. Having a short fuse is always good for getting going on my good - doing what I love to do.
I also believe, the shorter the time and the clearer the focus on my top SCG priorities, the faster time will seem to pass. Now, after my 2016 stroke, Patty's Alzheimers's, and my niece Mary's death at 61, I think it is best, for me, to begin thinking in three year rolling increments!
A short time view of life is not bad. Life is good. All is gift. The other side of the fence - albeit, unknowable, and with a bit of trepidation, I trust, is as good as God.
