Time Moves Slowly AND Quickly

December 12, 2011


What a strange feeling.  That time moves at a pace that is relative to your own experiences.  I’m not the first to notice, and won’t be the last.  But it is so clear to me now. Wednesday last week was the 1 year anniversary of when my mom died. That day was quite similar to […]
