I'd really, REALLY, REALLY like to know the answer to that question! As a teenager I loved the song "Time" by Pink Floyd. I knew even then, at some level, the truth of those lyrics. I vowed never to "fritter and waste the hours in an off handed way." And I'd never be "waiting for someone or something to show you the way ".
I had a copy of the lyrics up on the wall when I got my first professional job over 20 years ago. The most important verse to me, is the one I would think about every ten years since:
"And then one day you find ten years have got behind you
no one told when to run, you missed the starting gun..."
I didn't miss the starting gun. I've known I've been in a race and I try to pack as much life and love into every day that I can.
This year has been a huge transition year so I've been doing a lot of re-organizing and strategizing and re-prioritizing. I also have a new job that I'm learning. I'm spending lots of time with old and new friends and lots of time with my puppies. And I've been spending more time with Mac and Anni as well. More on all these topics are coming "soon".
So please be patient with me and my scarce posts. I will try really, really hard to post more often. And since I've done SUCH a lousy job, I can only do better!! I've been spending more time living than posting. The truth is - that "finish line" is getting closer and closer and I have so much more I want to do in my journey!!!
