Acres of Time

Daily Draw: Chinese Tarot ~ Star

Longevity. He has peaches from a tree that only blooms once in three thousand years. He is accompanied by the stag of strength, and cranes, also longevity icons.

Do we want a long life? Asked at the age of forty? Don't even think about it, that is a lifetime away. Fifty, yes, easy, forty years left yet. At sixty? Thirty years more, maybe. Probably.

I've always thought Rob and I looked younger than our age, people have said it often enough. But even a well lived life catches up with our mortality. I was amazed at how fast this past week went. And how fast this month went. I haven't got all the time in the world. Yikes.

I have today and that is all that matters. And it is early. Acres of time.

  1. The older I get, the faster time moves. Yet I often live mentally far into the future rather than where my feet are planted. What a waste that is...

  2. This night we had to skip one hour due to daylight saving time!! So one hour less today...

  3. lots of states here are dropping out of this madness :) Wish everyone would kick it to the curb, including Washington. We live in a 24 hour world, not one based on daylight agriculture.

  4. We have chosen the same deck! I almost did last week with the Chinese Tarot, but the Gaian wanted out first. I too wish the practice of Day Light Savings Time would end. It is a 24 hour World as Sharyn says. Maybe we should all 'wish upon the star' that the goverments banish the practice.

I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
