same as it ever was

Letting the days go by, water flowing underground.
Into the blue again in the silent water.

~ Once In A Lifetime, Talking Heads
Or maybe it's feeling more like this.

Our Son of Water has surfaced again today. Yet he is here with a sense of Overwhelm. The water is flowing too quickly. Even stopping to take a drink is a rushed process. With summer coming to a close in my neck of the woods there is a sense of urgency. Certainly the question of where the hell the time went ~ tempus fugit and all that ~ is uttered more often lately.

This is when Time is like water. Like a river. You could be standing on the shore watching the water flow on by. Or you can jump in and go with the flow. I know Our Son of Water would prefer to see you swimming along. He's like that ~ dreamy, easy-going. There is a quote about the past and the future, that all we ever really have is the present. Rather than drowning in doubt and worry, why not stand in this moment and let Time take you along? In this manner, you are always in the Present. It is the gift that releases you from those doubts and worries.

So.

Don't stand stranded on the shore. Jump into the River of Time and let yourself flow along. Yes, summer is coming to an end (or winter for other folks), but it's only part of a cycle. We can't be stuck in summer all the time. Let yourself find Beauty in where you are right now as you drift along for today.
