Time Waits For No One, A Lesson Learned From A Two Week Vacation And A Walk In The Woods.
I returned from a fabulous two week vacation in Scandinavia which seemed to go by in the wink of an eye. All of the wonderful sights kept me so busy it seemed like I was gone for a day. Well a few hikes in the woods today showed me that the passage of time in the natural world didn’t stop while I was gone.
I headed to the PPL Riverlands later in the morning and again realized how quickly the Summer passes. Many of the plants now have fruits and berries. The wild grapes are beginning to ripen and flowers and grasses are setting seeds. Summer is well past it’s peak now. It’s sad how quickly it passes and being away for just these two weeks made me realize this.
I realized today just how quickly time passes in the Summer and I just don’t want to miss any of it. i don’t think I will travel again during the Summer months. it is short enough in these parts and I want to enjoy every minute of it. This is a link to some more photographs from my hikes this morning. https://keepyoureyespeeled.net/photographs-5/nggallery/blog-photos/ppl-riverlands-august-9-2015
Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you. ~Carl Sandburg
