New Year

I find it interesting how some things are given the ability to show a sense of aging and others...not so much.

When you look in the mirror each day, do you see an older person than yesterday? Surely not. Well, maybe just a little but it would not phase you to any large extent. If you took a picture of yourself, put it in a box, buried it in the dirt and dug it up a year or two later, would you see your younger looking self? Yes, of course. Whether it be aging in wisdom or are different.

Take a seashell or a tree or even a turtle and you will be able to count each year that it has spent on this earth. In most cases, you are able to tell what it has been through whether it was a rain storm, a lengthy feast or draught with your own eyes.

Some things are given centuries to live and others, just a few seconds.
Those few brief moments of grandeur or those long prosperous memories.
They are all categorized under LIFE.

I am glad to be living it and sharing it with you.
