The days go by and I’m not getting any younger

Tomorrow is my birthday.

Mentally, I am preparing to have a wonderful day as I physically work the rest of my hours tonight at my job.

The week has been so busy the only time I get a chance to write these posts are mid-day to evening.

That’s alright.

5:55. Perfect timing.

Everyday, they go by.

The days,

the thoughts;

all fluttering by.

And I’m not getting any younger.

If anything, it’s my mind that regresses in age;

remaining curious and nimble to it all.

That is what the Tao says.

Be like a little child.

And so I sit and watch the clouds float past.

What a day it is.

The sun contemplates setting while the heat remains still.

I imagine my walk home.

I look forward to the day ahead but if I can make this one last just a bit longer…. I would.

As excited as I am for a day spent on me,

something within me shutters at the thought of my age’s last digit moving up the scale.

It is a feeling I must accept.

There’s nothing else to it.

There is no avoiding the change that is destined for us all.

This

is true growth.

I wonder where you are

and what you’re doing on this evening or day.

When is your birthday?

I hope it’s spent well.

I’ll see you on the other side of today ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ
