There’s nothing like having a new baby that gets me thinking a whole lot about time…it’s ability to stand still…all the while losing complete track of it. It seems like every hour I look at my newborn babe and he has changed already in some way. His face fills out, his eyes and head follow just a little farther, he reaches out with those tightly clenched fists of his. The hours turn to days and weeks, then months to years, all too quickly. Just the mere thought of how fast time can pass by gets me all in a tizzy. I often need to stop myself and remind myself to just be here now…to stop thinking so much…and appreciate what is…the time I have to hold and cherish a little baby yet again. When I am here and stay present, I can truly appreciate the stillness that I feel in my ability to transcend that whole bit about time.
Happy four weeks Sorrel Ash. Here we are.
