22 days....countless hours

22 days and countless hours have passed since I last posted. So much has happened in those 22 turns of the Earth....and it both saddens and scares me that I can't remember most of it.
How can I not remember most of it? That's 22 days of my life that I have seemingly forgotten....gone, evaporated into the mist of time, never to be recovered...memory is such a false friend.

I get so nostalgic about things, places, people, events. The transience of life doesn't sit right with me somehow, I wish so much that in some ways, it was static. In saying that, I would rail against that very same 'static-ness', and it is such a relief knowing that things will change and life moves forward, ever forward, up and away into the future.


  1. You have been changing people's lives, you have been living in the moment, you have been reaffirming your faith, you have cooked for your husband and he loved it, you have worked yourself to the bone, come home weary - but full of excitment, you have reminded your sister of her responsibility in life, you have loved her just the same.

    Don't discount what you have done, for it was great xox

  2. And with those words, memory came flooding back, and with it, all 22 of those days. You're so lovely for remembering all that about me-and what's more, you are quickly becoming my second favourite writer, behind Paullina Simons :) I' ll buy anything you publish!

  3. Thanks so much for your uplifting comments. What a compliment!


I love comments!
