I feel as though I have traveled through time during the last few days.
Our son is getting married in May, and we are planning to have a slide show of him and his bride at the rehearsal dinner. I have looked through many pictures of him recently to choose which photos to use. It seemed that he grew up right before my eyes.
In preparation for this wonderful March SOLC writing challenge, I have randomly read back through several of my previous postings. Since many of them are about moments in my own past, I was transported to several other times and other places. It seemed that many years passed, one right after another.
Just this weekend we drove to Mississippi for a gracious party for our son’s future bride. We left a day in Tennessee with a forecasted high of 30 degrees. We drove through 4-6 inches of snow that had fallen two days earlier in northern Alabama. (Fortunately the roads were clear.) We were greeted upon our arrival by sunny skies, warm temperatures, green fields, and buttercups in bloom. It seemed we had driven through seasons, from winter to spring.
Time is such a hard thing to pin down. It can pass like lightning or syrup depending on our circumstances. I am looking forward to spending time with fellow writers in this year’s March writing challenge. Welcome one and all!
