We Used to Have A Certain Je Ne Sais Quoi

“When you’re young, you think everything you do is disposable. You move from now to now, crumpling time up in your hands, tossing it away. You’re your own speeding car. You think you can get rid of things, and people too—leave them behind. You don’t yet know about the habit they have, of coming back. Time in dreams is frozen. You can never get away from where you’ve been.” ~ Margaret Atwood, The Blind Assassin    

We Used to Have A Certain Je Ne Sais Quoi

I used to think if I spread myself thin and worked really hard, I’d get done quicker. As I aged, it became apparent that the hurried-er I get, the further behind-er I become. So many thoughts to talk about but alas, sometimes we have to put our hobbies aside to focus on the grown up things, like work. *sigh* Keep a light on for me, I reckon I’ll get there sooner or later.

  1. *hugs* Sis! I like Margaret Atwood, read much of her work. Life motors on as it will, I think we live many lives in this one especially at this time in history as I believe that there is little time left for any spiritual evolution and we need to get on with it in our generation. Our past is in our make-up and forms the opportunities we get in the present. In a way, we’re baking a cake for what happens in our future. It’s all much more universal and bigger than just this present life. I like how writers manage to grasp this sometimes and even if they are writing through a character, the words are there on the page for all to see 🙂

I'm done inconveniencing electrons, any thoughts? Come on, you know you have 'em, post them up here.
