With four friends celebrating birthdays, it's almost inevitable that the passage of time occupies my thoughts today. Just a blink ago, life stretched out before me like a vast, unexplored landscape. How did I approach these final years so quickly? Whether five years remain, or ten, or twenty, if I'm lucky, it's a given that they'll pass in another blink of an eye.

Things that were important once aren't anymore. I'll tell you what matters: people. Connecting. Making my mark by my role in their lives. Indulging my passions. Creating beauty, even if it's ephemeral and for my eyes only. Living my truth. Peace.

Those who will remember me are also traversing the universe at the speed of light. All too soon, they too will be reduced to names without stories that crop up in genealogical searches.

But we matter. And the time to matter is now. That's enough, I think.

    We are so busy living, that we don't realize the passage of time until we near the end.

    Well said and words to ponder Sly. So true that time goes by in a blink. Wish we had an expiration date. Nice to see you back on here. Missed your blogs!
