Time for Another Cup of “Joe”

 

img_07871Waiting for the sun to rise and listening for the sounds of spring, these are my chores this morning. The coffee is brewing on the stove and paper in hand, ready for the day.

Spring will be early this year; I feel it in my bones. Saw some robins in the yard yesterday; a sure sign of spring. The tulips are peeking through the ground, readying their burst of seasonal color.

The crispness in the air makes the coffee taste better. This porch is a perfect spot to observe the start of a new day. The morning is peaceful and still, but the quiet will soon be broken with the business of the day. Like a calm before the storm, early morning is witnessed by very few.

Pine trees lend freshness to the early morning air as the wind whistles through their tops. Soon, the eastern sky will be ablaze with morning light; a new day begins. Time for another cup of “Joe.”

Where Did the Time Go?

 

Was it only yesterday or was it the day before? Where did the time go? Seems like the older one gets, the faster the time goes. Just seems that way because time is constant, it does not change…we do.

The change isn’t something we plan or even take part in, nor do we notice it day by day, but when we realize it’s Saturday again…it’s a “where did the week go” kind of thing. One day blends into another and before you realize it, another week is gone.

Busy will do it…not enough time in the day to get things done. Retired does it too…that feeling of doing nothing and getting behind. Keeping busy is healthy for all ages…not too busy, but the “enough to do” kind of busy.

Listening to the ticking of a clock in a quiet room is an exercise in stillness. You sit, breathing in and out, listening to each tick as it becomes each beat of your heart. You remember that time is a gift…one day the ticking will stop and your heart will beat no more. You vow to pay more attention to time…it is all you have.
