It’s hard to believe that summer is about here. It’s also hard to believe the fact that we are already in June. One has to
ask that same old question about where did the first half of the year go?
It wasn’t that long ago when we celebrated the New Year. Valentine’s Day flew by, and so did Easter, and the rest
of the holidays. Spring break passed, the graduations are over, and now school is out.
I’ve always felt that the older we get, the faster the year flies, but it has gotten totally out of control. I do say this in fun,
But really and truly it is not so fun after all. I am not prepared to put up my Christmas decorations. Yes, it is six months
away, but the way things are going, we’ll suddenly be there.
As we get older we look for those long lazy day summers. The ones we spent in our childhood. Perhaps it is only doled
out to the young. If only there was some way to capture those moments. They say that you’re only as old as you want to
be, so maybe going backwards might do the trick.
Cloud watching or playing a board game might do the trick. A thousand piece puzzle would be a change. Chalk might be the
answer. The sidewalk could be decorated in the midst of a hopscotch pattern.
A quick trek up a tree would really bring one back. On the other hand, the neighbors might begin to wonder what is going
on. Seeing their longtime neighbor suddenly up a tree, would not bring back any youth or time stalling for them. They might
assume that some form of help is needed.
So maybe there are other ways to slow down the time. In the meantime I might as well enjoy day today, no matter how
quickly it passes.
