The Present is the Inheritance of Now

"A day is Eternity's seed, and we are its Gardeners."  ~Erika Harris

If only we could grow time like corn in a field...
for it does seem that time has wings of its own...
and it wrinkles all in its path...

...but what a beautiful ride that it is...

...and at times it can be confusing and seem to spiral out of our grasp...

 then pieces seem to get lost along the way...
 and focus all we may the clock keeps ticking at the same pace...

as time ripples outward to tomorrow from yesterday...

yet, no matter how you look at it...time stops for no one,
so listen to the words of dear Emily who said:

"Forever is composed of nows."  ~Emily Dickinson

Wishing everyone a Happy New Year!

  1. What a beautiful post, Carrie, and how true. (i love the clock with the train tracks)
    I wonder how much of this time, so precious, fleeting, and limited, we spend on regrets and what might have been.
    As i like to say, you can get to pluto easier than getting to yesterday. So look to things to come.

    1. Thank you Rick, and what a wonderful saying "you can get to pluto easier than yesterday" so very true! :-)

  2. cool words by emily, but cool collage of words and pics by you as well...we are given a limited amount of true moments in life....we should def embrace each of them in the now...
