Where does the time go? The minutes and seconds of the “right now” when I’m racing around to write before the work clock starts ticking. I finished my Lady Alone Traveler post for the local paper and I see there’s little time to reflect on the longer stretches of time. The days, months, and years of our lives.
Tomorrow, my brother Jim will celebrate a birthday.

There are so many stories I could write but there is always the ticking of time, slipping faster and faster through the hourglass. As F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote, “we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.”
If that’s true, we’ll return to the topic of brothers and birthdays. For now, I send my brother, my only sibling, an early and very happy wish for a wonderful birthday!
