Song of Time

Why? When there is a moment I wish would last forever - it's gone in a heartbeat.
Why? When there is a moment I feel will be impossible to endure for another second - it lasts forever.

TIME is a trickster: can amuse itself, is eternal.

February 28th always makes me stop and think about things that are always changing, and even when changing, remain the same.

February, the month with 28 days. A full cycle of the moon. A month, that in the Northern Hemisphere is deep winter, is cold, is very dark, as it begins. A month that seems to understand that the nicest thing it can do is to be short and sweetly leave us with a real promise of light to come.

  1. I love this ... I have a friend who's birthday is February 29th ... she's a lot younger than the rest of us that have lived as many years. I look forward to future posts. See if you get an e-mail announcing the fact I've made a comment. J

  2. Jennifer, Oh! How could I have not mentioned the Mystical February 29th? Wishing your friend a very special birthday.
