Tomorrow is my birthday. My kids are growing before my eyes at a frightening rate. I feel young and old at the same time. There’s so much I want to do in life but I also have perspective on where I’ve been and what I already have that I’m grateful for. I want to keep striding forward but at the same time want to freeze time because this moment, right now is probably as good as life will ever be unless some magical device is invented that will enable me take the accumulated moments of my life and compile and reconfigure them so that everyone I have ever loved would be here, in this place and time with me.
“Time is a sort of river of passing events, and strong is its current; no sooner is a thing brought to sight than it is swept by and another takes its place, and this too will be swept away.” – Marcus Aurelius
