As Time Flies By
That is SO interesting to ponder the difference between the 'dense' memories of you first time doing something to the commonplace memories that your brain no longer deems important.
It is also a rude awakening to me when I contemplate the feeling of time flying by. If you choose to believe the theory described in the NPR article, then the feeling of time passing faster than you are moving could only mean that you need to commence to experience new things!
I will always think of just that when I get the similar feeling of nostalgia/fleeting moments; it is the perfect moment to start something for the first time.
I agree Kev…I think it's an important reminder to strive to experience the dense moments in life by constantly putting yourself in situations where you can learn and grow and experience things for the first time. When time seems to be passing too quickly, it really is the perfect time to start something fresh!
Carolyn! Did the friend that said that about time have blond hair, an obsession with becoming a Lord of the Rings elf, and a really crazy side that occassionally makes her jump up and down and shout new songs that just popped into her head in the general direction of heavenly bodies far, far away? 🙂
You know what I else I have to say about this post? AWESOME! I love us. So much. I love you girls and I love our connection more than words can describe. God has blessed me so beautifully to be a part of this circle that I better do some jumping and song creating right now! 😉 I love seeing our pictures. Can you imagine how fun it is going to be in 50 years to look back at all our pictures? Do you think they will start to include husbands and kids?? Wild. What an adventure that still unfolds before us. I'm glad we are venturing upon it together. We haven't officially signed anything in blood yet, but I'm up for it if someone else wants to suggest it so I don't look any crazier than everyone already knows I am. Maybe you and I could create some sort of nature ritual solidifying our friendship. You can write all the things that we'll say, and I'll connect with the nature spirits. Then we'll be set! heehee
