A Friday Photo and the Passage of Time


Hello :-)

Today I'm back with another photo since it's Friday. As I've mentioned before, I'll be sharing photos that are new along with ones that are from my archives. Well, this one is an older photo. When I looked at the date listed for when I took it, I was taken aback. This was taken in 2010. Wow! I know that it's cliche to say it, but time really flies!

Sometimes when I look back at older photos I truly can't believe just how long ago they were taken. I know that 2010 isn't a million years ago, but as I mature it seems that the years fly by faster and faster. My parents used to always tell me that time goes by really quickly and they used to advise me to enjoy being a child or enjoy being younger. I took their advice as well as I could and I enjoyed those growing up years. But now when I look back to what they said I really get the gravity of what they were saying. It's not that I feel like I'm running out of time or anything, but at this point in my life I feel more and more how precious life is and that life is precious because it's finite. We are here for a blip of time so every day is a gift. I didn't mean to start sounding like a greeting card, but sometimes things just hit you. You know? :-)

Now, to get back to my original thought...time flies and I can't believe that this photo was taken four and a half years ago. I would have guessed maybe eighteen months to two years ago. Anyway, I took this photo during a walk in the woods. As you can see it's a bit of ivy growing on a rock. The photo is kinda blurry, but I prefer to call it atmospheric...Lol. Looking at the picture today, I'm thinking that I wish that I could go back and find that same rock to see if the ivy has totally overtaken the rock or whatever. Hmmm. I wonder...the mysteries of the Wiltshire, England countryside ;-)

So that's my photo for this Friday. I hope you enjoy taking a look. 

Have a great Friday and a wonderful weekend! 

Until next time...
