The older you get, the fastest time seems to go - I wonder why that is?
Wasn't it just New Years? Valentine's Day? May Day? Weren't the crocuses just blooming?
It's really time to pay attention to life - how quickly it speeds by.

Soon, though, the ground will again be white.
roll of toilet paper that seems to be life is spinning faster and faster.
"Stop time!" I want to scream. "How can I be half way through this year?"
How can I make time stop?
There's nothing like a challenge to focus me, and focusing on life really does seem to slow down time - for a while, anyway. So, this month, I am participating in not ONE, but TWO blog challenges.
One is the Ultimate Blog Challenge. This may be the last one, so I need to make it good. 30 posts in 30 days.
The other one is a challenge I've only done once before - NaBloPoMo, "National Blog Posting Month.", brought to us by BlogHer.
Each month, NaBloPoMo encourages bloggers to sign up and blog on a certain theme. This month's theme is Decades. So, speaking of time speeding by - let's introduce the concept of Decades!
"This summer is BlogHer's 10th anniversary!" we are told. Today, our prompt is "Tell us something YOU have been doing for ten straight years."
Well, at the rate time is flying, the next time I blink, ten more years would have passed. So, perhaps I shouldn't even think of what I've been doing for ten straight years. Instead, I should concentrate on stopping time.
Actually, there is a lot my spouse and I have been doing for ten straight years, and even more years than that. Community gardening. Flower gardening. Photography. And, I've been blogging for five years, half a decade. Speaking of my blog....
If you are new to my blog, welcome! I post on the following schedule:
Wednesdays (hey, that's tomorrow!) is my Summer Ramblings weekly feature-anything to do with summer, but most probably flower pictures.
Saturday is Sustainable Saturday - local food, farmers' markets, community gardening, and more.
Sunday I had been doing a Civil War Sunday feature. I suspended it in June; I may start it up again.
The rest of the time - anything goes.
Do you feel like time goes too fast? Or have you found a way to slow it down?
