Time is a Created Thing

Time is a created thing, to say “I don’t have time” is like saying “I don’t want to.” Lao Tzu

Well, Mr. Tzu, I’m afraid I would have to disagree. I WANT to do so many things, even though I already do so many things. What’s interesting is, when I was writing the title of this post, I wrote “Time is a limited thing” When I checked it, I saw that I had quoted wrong! Freudian slip? I think so!

I am feeling extremely short on this most precious commodity lately. Every day disappears before I can even get started on my next project. Why, just yesterday, I had a 1 pm appointment. It was 11:30 when I took note of the time and made a plan to ‘just do a bit of work on the computer’ and then get ready to go. Well, 5 minutes later, my computer clock read 1:17 pm. WHAT!?!? That can’t be; I quickly got up and checked another clock – OMG!

Benjamin Franklin said, “Lost time is never found again”.

So, off I go, desperately seeking time…

Uncle Walnut – Our beautiful backyard tree is suddenly gone from our lives. Such a sad day. Luckily, it damaged absolutely nothing.

On the dinosaur trail

Our first trip to Alberta was the last week of June 2012. We just never had the opportunity before, but we finally made it. Even though we had to drive through the Kootenays and southern Alberta due to flooding of the highway in Sicamous and east of Revelstoke and taking a gruelling 15 hours, we had a great time. No painting was done, alas, but now that we are back and the sun is finally shining, we are set to paint “en plein aire” any day now.

It’s a new year, a fresh beginning! May all your hopes and dreams come to fruition. May all your choices be the right ones. May every person you love be happy and healthy including yourself!
