around here. time

this past week, due to the time change, i felt like i was trying to wake up a tired teenager in the morning

i don’t blame her, it felt unnatural to be waking before the sun rose just like it felt unnatural to be going to bed while it was still light out

i have been thinking a lot about time

i was thinking about my great grandmother Delfina the other day

like i often do

 i had not yet realized how long she has now been gone for

when i did the math, it has been almost thirty years

it doesn’t feel like that long ago since i last saw her

perhaps because in my mind and in my heart she is often with me and i remember her just like i saw her yesterday

it’s funny how that can happen isn’t it?

even though so much time has passed, it doesn’t feel that long since i last saw her…

and then sometimes it’s just the opposite

like with Lily

she is only four but yet pregnancy feels like a lifetime ago

time is a funny thing

they say that only time can heal but i think that time can also cause great pain

on a happier note, it’s friday

happy weekend friends
