68: The speed of time

(Floating in Mission Bay.)

Every now and then time drifts by slowly, the day seeming to stretch out forever.  On other occasions, it speeds right on by and you wonder what happened to the day.

(Riding the wave.)

It can be difficult to keep your balance on busy days.  The waves of busy-ness can knock you over if you’re not paying attention.


I’m on my way out for my outdoor time.  I’ve had a lot to do today to make up for lazing around all weekend and the day has flown by.  I still have lots to do but need a break.  Being outdoors will slow things down a little, allow me to regain my balance.  It’s a nice day for a walk.  Sunny again.  And mild, with temps in the 50’s.

(Making a splash)

I’m posting now — before my walk — because I’m not sure I’ll have the time later.  The next week or so is going to be a little hectic, I think.  With one holiday just behind us and another coming up, I suspect time is going to speed right along at a merry pace.

I’m going to try to go with the flow and keep up as best I can.  Hopefully I’ll have some things to share with you tomorrow from my walk today.  I’m going to try adding an hour or two to my day by not being such a lazy slug in the mornings and getting up at a decent time.  Sleeping in has become a mini-habit of late.  I don’t regret it, but it is time to change that habit.  I like early mornings, and getting up a little earlier will give me more time for my yoga practice and morning meditation.  I don’t like to rush my way through those things.

Getting up a little earlier might also allow me more time for blogging.  Priorities, you know?  😉
