A Trick of Time and Mind

“One of the great disadvantages of hurry is that it takes such a long time.” ~ G. K. Chesterton

“There’s been time this whole time. You can’t kill time with your heart. Everything takes time.” ~ David Foster Wallace

“It’s all fine to say, “Time will heal everything, this too shall pass away. People will forget”—and things like that when you are not involved, but when you are there is no passage of time, people do not forget and you are in the middle of something that does not change.” ~ John Steinbeck

The warning signs are here, telling me to take it light and breezy today. Yeh, okay. It’s that Monday that would be a Friday. Four days straight of gainful employment. Tired, and emotionally low. Self-judgmental. But this is not all light and breezy, is it? Nope. I seem to be more sleepy for a while now – or needing more sleep? Change of season is the likely culprit. Not that it matters. In fact, chances are this tiredness has not been going on for anywhere near as long as I think it has. It’s a trick of time. Or of mind. Whatever. It is good to have the old support structure of cat and coffee. Sunrise is a short ways away but first light is rising and it will soon be time to go out for my morning look at the mountains. I truly wish I had something more to write about this morning. Maybe tomorrow.

All is well. Goof gloriously.
