It may be a product of getting older, but there are times when I want to stop time.
I want to make the sunsets last just a little longer.
I want the quiet mornings to go on and on, the laughter at the dinner table to stretch out into a whole evening, the beauty of the clouds as they race across the valley to never end. It is not that I want to freeze reality, just slow it down. I want life to move as slow as me. For I have learned that life moves far too fast as it is. It is a joy that endures but briefly, made of moments that pass as quickly as hummingbirds.
Let me linger in the love I feel. Let me see the light for as long as I can.
