Life has this funny way of attacking you - especially when you're not anticipating or expecting it. And suddenly the days melt into warmer mosquito-infested nights, blending into weeks and months that - within the blink of an eye - suddenly turn into a year. I've been quite busy, as I've been for some time now, and things tend to take a back seat. None of it is planned, life just... happens. And sometimes it's difficult to keep up, other times, not so much.
I've been struck (as I've been many, many times before) with the very real and almost tangible notion of how fleeting everything is. And once again, for the millionth time, it makes me incredibly sad. If only we could bottle these little life moments that we otherwise take for granted - devour them with the same gusto most people tend to do when presented with a piece of salacious gossip - and make them last forever. There wouldn't be a better elixir on the earth.
The only thing that makes sense as we're thrusted into this unknown abyss called life, is to make the most out of it and appreciate every second, breath it all in and savour the moments - like a warm cup of tea on a cold rainy day.
I'll be back...
