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.
