Time is a jet plane, it moves too fast

“Time is a jet plane, it moves too fast” ~Bob Dylan, You’re a Big Girl Now.

It is imperative to slow down in these most hectic times.

We all need to take a breather now and then…it is a sign we

haven’t been completely consumed by the culture.

  Sand and water, great teachers to me for the ultimate in be here now.

Slow blessings on you all as the summer this side of the equator begins

to show signs of gentle yielding.  A maple leaf on the ground in a riot of red,

the evening air filled with the slowing chirp of cicada, and the waning nights of

searching for the summer triangle up there within cygnus and the big

dipper as well as the others nightly stars.

The meteorologist on the radio here has a habit of telling us the daily

loss of sunlight since we’ve passed the summer solstice.  Thank you sir, but

really, I don’t need that ticking clock…just look around.  It is writ large on the earth

for those with eyes to see.

Be still.  There is magic in the air.




  1. Beautiful, Anna… And timely 🙂

    • Thanks Sandi. Hope your day is slowly wonderful.

  2. Just beautiful, Anna, thanks for that! I’m taking that with me on my trip to Maine today. – Kaye

    • Have a great trip Kaye.

  3. Beautifully written, Anna. Thank you for resetting my day 🙂

    • Thanks Ogee, I appreciate that. Never too late in the day to have a good morning 🙂

  4. Imperative to slow down…how true!!! I need to remember that! Thanks Anna!

    • You’re so welcome. I need to remind myself all too often 😉

  5. Just peaked on the 13th, but while you’re looking up don’t forget to watch for the Perseid meteor showers; )

    • We always enjoy them Deb, thanks for the reminder 🙂 The sky is such a great thing to watch.

  6. It’s so true, the waning days of August are always bittersweet (and that meteorologist needs a little “Gibb’s smack” upside the head; )
