Here we are again for Five Minute Friday, the weekly key-word themed timed writing challenge hosted by the wonderful Kate Motaung.
The word this week is...EASY
The only easy day was yesterday.
Beyond the point of despair lies I-do-not-care...and beyond that lies something else.
A comforting sort of peace, in which I know that I had better enjoy today, because tomorrow is going to suck, and today will seem like a vacation in comparison.
It's comforting because it makes today feel like a temporary shelter in a storm. I know the wind's backing around, and I'll soon be drenched, but for now, I'm dry.
This is all going to end. When, I don't know. Yesterday there was a bell ringing in my head...you're running out of time.
Melodramatic, and writing it, it seems kind of silly. But I'm sure running out of energy. Writing the blog pots and commenting on other essays...fewer each week, and I hate that...takes almot all the resources I have.
So maybe I am running out of time.
But it doesn't matter, because I've got today. The same hours you have, and everyone has.
And the most important thing is this.
It's not how I use them.
It's how I value them.
And now...let's sing along with John, Paul, George, and Ringo!
If you can, please do leave a comment. I am trying to answer all, and I am failing, but please know this - I read and treasure each one.
Below are my recent releases on Kindle -please excuse their presence in the body of the blog. I haven't the energy to get them up as 'buttons' in the sidebar. You can click on the covers to go to the Amazon links (they're 99 cents each). And if you'd like a free PDF, please email me at tempusfugit02 (at) gmail (dot) com, and I'll gladly send them
