do not forget me…

“It is upon such stones that men attempt to permanently etch history so they will not exist in a vacuum; it is the final statement after a lifetime of scratching out divisions upon the ground, over ephemeral time itself, merely to give their short journeys meaning, to tell others “I was here – do not forget me, do not let my brief blast dissolve into nothingness.” Rob Bignell

Around we go, searching…

“I only wanted to tell you that this was the wonderful time for you. Don’t let any of it go by without enjoying it. There won’t be any more merry-go-rounds. No more cotton candy. No more band concerts. I only wanted to tell you, Martin, that this is the wonderful time. Now! Here!” Rod Serling, Stories from the Twilight Zone

Chinese writing…

Perhaps someone could explain the meaning? I could not locate the usual, nearby explanation for what I was viewing beyond a pleasing water feature.

The sky, on high…

Ever notice how many people display images of the sky…usually not just a blue sky, but rather a combination of clouds, sky and the pallet of colors. Something draws the eye, the mind to the sky beyond the colors and cloud shapes. I’m never certain how to express the why’s of it all or if it is even necessary beyond it all pleases. Yet, I silently wonder. Something primitive, spiritual, prophetic, soothing or ominous, in all the variations, captures the eye, in person or as shared by others.

Contemplation in the backyard…

Was life good today?

Did I give a hand, a smile?

Did I walk the talk?

Dawn’s early light….

Early morning, a few birds start to chirp. A bull bellows in the distance. The chill gives goosebumps. The air is fresh and crisp. The cluttered mind is challenged to simplify, to decompress. The day dawns, another day of life and what am I to do to honor that gift?

Where does time go?

The holiday season, in particular, elicits a great deal of thoughts and emotions for many. Yes, the blessings or seeming lack there of preys upon the mind, heart and stomach. But, whether your life is bountiful or lonely another element ever more preys upon my mind….time. Fleeting time. It is true what they said long ago, when I was young, ‘the time just seems to fly by ever faster’. And you know what, it does. Days, weeks, months and then years fly by ever faster. A few trips, a few family gatherings, a few accomplishments and a whole lot of time unused, wasted, evaporating. When you are younger it seems never ending and when you are older I think we still take it for granted.

I have this memory etched into my mind: my Mom was in hospice in our home. She was dying of cancer. She became more reflective and withdrawn. We never did have long conversations about our inner thoughts. Just didn’t happen. But, one day a short utterance from her came forth. “You know Gary, I never really did anything in life. It all went by so fast. I still feel like a little girl…afraid.” 

A strong recollection, a prompt to live life and love life. The time is still going to fly by. So what are you going to do today to make it a little bit more meaningful for you and those you like & love?
