The end of August, the end of another summer gone in no time. Leaves beginning to fall, plans uncompleted, lawns not mowed enough, flower beds unattended, and projects still in the same status of spring. Each month seems to pass faster than the previous without warning and without slowing down. The "busy-ness" of the work week burns out the motivations of the evenings and weekends. Eat, work, recover, sleep, eat, work.... well, I guess there are more "eat" steps in there for me than there should be, but the routine is similar. I used to think that life would slow down as you age, you'd have time to appreciate it more and feel more accomplished. Not happening here at least. So much to do so little time to do it seems the standard. Time marches on, accomplishments do not. 

I do stop, however, and appreciate what I have, often. I can walk, I can work, I can play, and I do have more free time than many around the world. I have a job, I have a family, I have a house and the things that go with those the good Lord has given me. I have good health, as compared to many, which is the one of the most important of all. I actually can do things I want to do for the most part without assistance or other resources. I can even sit here wasting time writing and complaining that I don't have time to do things.... Oh, wait... I just need that time expansion tool but I don't have enough time to work on it! Oh the conundrums of life. :-)
