Years Passing By…

October 26, 2015

A conversation with a stranger put the mind to thinking. Under ten years ago the location was one of clean mountains and fresh air. Was there hope, yes. Today, hope is different. Mountains¬† aren’t as plentiful, but that’s alright for now. Most important is being where one lives. Not only in body, but in mind and spirit as well. When living inside your head there is so much lost time in the real world. Looking upon the landscape one tends to see what’s missing. The” if only’s” add up to great figures in the ledger. The debits far outweigh the assets. Simple daily routines can be comforting. Predictability is not boring if done with a right attitude. This is an acquired skill in some of us. Life is fleeting even if it gives you 100 years of full capacity living.

Getting outside of one’s thoughts and into the surrounding world in which you live can give a sense of purpose. Raking leaves in Fall, smelling the fresh snow if you happen to have it in your geographic area, simply looking out to the vast skies when stars wink and blink at you from the dark shaded covering can give you a sense of belonging. Right here. Right now. Go forth and LIVE.
