Time is so annoying!
Seriously, I just cannot put up with it seamlessly sliding from dragging to rushing and almost always exactly the opposite way one would like it to go. I expected that following the two weeks of spring break days would get a little busy, but getting up this morning and realizing that it was Monday, Monday Maaaarch… no APRIL, APRIL 6TH… so anyways, I had a little moment there. I looked back at my calendar to see where the past three weeks went - looking back I do remember every day I loved every moment of it - but still I am dissatisfied with the overall experience because it was just SO FAST!
A few weeks ago I sent out a recital announcement for my final graduate recital here at Juilliard and even though my program is all about time and said announcement talks about exactly what is annoying me so much now, I wish I had really known back then how I will feel laying on my bed tonight writing this post. There is no way to stop time from running. The absolute best you can do is to let it run away and just keep walking at your pace following the footsteps enjoying every single step and making memories. As you walk along and think back to where you have been you loop back the path of time and create an intricate and immense spiral sprung between infinities. It’s a grand thought and sort of sobering and inspiring because it makes you look away and notice your surroundings again and again from time to time. There is so much to do right there at your fingertips and when is a better time to jump right in than now? It’s showtime!
Enjoy the happy weather!
