excess speed
my life
days become weeks,
weeks become months,
months turn into years etc.etc.
look back
memories so clear
then the things forgotten.....
mom??
do you remember?????
No I do not
no matter how hard I try
I don't recall
times in my life I have lost
but my children
haven't.....
not yet
45 and still trying to figure out
who I am
and what I want to be when I grow up....

  4. The forties are a microscope. We disect, we wonder, we recreate, and perhaps come back to a version of what we were, perhpas so much more. And Glenn is right...the growing up takes even longer than a decade.

  5. I identify!
    __Time travels so quickly it simply cannot be seen; -the hummingbird's wings-.
    __I remember many things, but my fear is,
    "my imagination may add to those memories." Oh, not lies... but truth, perhaps decorated by
    -the hummingbird's wings-.

    __Cindy, at 68... I've yet to stumble upon what I wanna-be wenn I gwow-up!

    Best wishes! _m
