Time Is Flying Faster Than Ever

Apparently, I'm not the only one thinking about time, I just joined the whole humanity. Seriously, there is so much written about it out there that my head started spinning from all the theories. Is there an absolute truth about this phenomenon? I seriously doubt it. What initiated my curiosity is this very strong feeling I have as of lately that time is just rushing by, not measured by hours and days any more but rather by years and decades. Suddenly, it's like the countdown started going backwards to an unknown last number. I don't like this feeling, it's weighing me down, paralyzing my dreams. I'm constantly questioning myself about the sense of everything I do. I've got to engage in something creatively productive, I need to start making things with my hands, transforming a raw material in something useful -  my office job just doesn't cut it any more.
Enough of being smart and philosophical! Autumn is coming slowly and it's beautiful. Definitely my season of choice here in Canada. I love everything about it : colors, light, temperature, smell of fallen leaves and rain - yes, especially rain. I think I'll go out and finally buy a pair of rubber boots for myself. And if I was courageous enough it would be those, with a matching umbrella. I love to jump from one puddle to another, going trough the leaves gathered by the wind...
I didn't make my last flower arrangement of the season yet, but I think I've got my last tomatoes and peppers...
My office moved last week to another building, much closer to my house. We were packing for weeks and moving trough the mountains of boxes trying to follow the normal work routine. This week, the first in the new place, everyone was looking for something, many things got yet to be organized and installed. Today I was told that we have to be patient for the next 10 to 15 days. No problem! Patience is my middle name.

Hi Yasmine. It is good to see your post again, I always smile when I see it pop up in my 'blogs that I follow'. That time thing is strange and I do think that our lives are so full and so much to do that the days just go fast. And about the needing to create, well, I believe if a person is artistic then that strong desire wells up inside and you have to make something or you will explode..Love those boots and I think Fall may be my favorite time too but then I will probably say the same thing about Spring when it rolls around so please don't hold me to that.
Have a good night.

Tempus fugit - even the old Romans knew that. It's funny, I know exactly what you mean, Yasmine. Somehow the whole perception of time goes through stages. And the older I get, the faster it seems to fly past. Obviously something to do with our growing awareness of the finity of our time on Earth... Well, to stay with the Romans: Carpe diem. I try to seize the day. Hope you do, too!

@Sherri,love your thoughtful comments. I smile too each time when you leave one.
@Sonja, good to have you back! Carpe diem is my motto too, but somehow I tend to put less things in a day then before...

I like Fall in Canada too, but this year the weather is weird. Too many ups and downs.

I have a weird relationship with time... It goes by too fast, too slow, I'm never happy!

@Zhu: we had a wonderful weather this year here in Quebec! Hope it stays like that in the future...
