This is not the first time that the pace of life seems to have speeded up. It seems that I have been trying to keep up with time for a long time now.
On the good side of slow-downed life, I can remember that when I was teaching school, I would clean the whole house on a Saturday morning and there was still time left over to bake bread as well.
But now life seems to be a race and whizzes by. I am huffing and puffing.
Somehow, this morning, October 7, swept me up. A minute ago, it was October 1st, and now it's the 7th of October. There it is -- time rushing past me. I hope I can catch up with time.
I hope I can surpass it!
