Taking pictures is savoring life intensely, every hundredth of a second.”

~ Marc Riboud

A few weeks ago I started writing 2017 as the year. Why? I have no idea. Stranger still, it took a week or so before I realized what I was doing.

When I was still working in the corporate world summer was a crazy busy time for me. It was crunch time on a huge project that required me to think ahead to the upcoming year.

Summer is still a crazy busy time with gardening and canning and I’m in the midst of the very busiest time right now.

Maybe vestiges of my corporate life remain. Or maybe I’m subconsciously thinking ahead to winter when we’ll be snug at home while the snow blows outside secure in the knowledge that we have a pantry full of nutritious food to sustain us.

Or maybe I’m just losing my mind.

Today’s featured blog:

I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things.
  1. I find that I do that periodically. I go forward and back in time. Must remind myself to live in the now.

    1. Glad I’m not the only one, Carol!

  2. For several months last year, I kept thinking I was two years older than I really was. Imagine my relief to find out I got two years back on my birthday! I think it’s a result of just having too much information to keep track of.

    1. I think you’re right, Karen. Too much to remember and life moving too quickly. Maybe it’s a sign that it’s time to slow down?

  3. 2017. Rushing it a little, huh? I have found myself sometimes writing a ridiculous date… Like 1990. Or 1978. And then I pause and think, maybe my mind is trying to tell me something, and I try to reflect (if I can remember) what I was doing that year.

    1. Crazy, isn’t it? I like your idea about pausing and considering if there is a message in the mix-up. Somehow makes it easier to swallow than I’m just losing my mind!

  4. It happens to me too Linda, but I usually only ahead by a day or a week. Not sure what it is but slowing down sounds like a good option.
