Illusive Time

My perception of time is completely bollixed. It was two weeks ago this evening that I arrived at my parents’s home for dinner and they told me about the cancer, but it seems like the day before yesterday. Yet I feel as if I’ve lived ten years since. It seems like I’ve been writing this blog for a long time. But I just checked and it’s been only six intense days.

Regardless of my perceptions, time is extraordinarily precious–I’ve long striven to live in acknowledgement of that fact but now its value is underscored. There is so little time to do so many essential things; to capture, to learn, to enjoy, to remember, to love, to grieve, to accept.
