Yesterday I went to a winter fair, even though it is still Fall.
The fair turned out to be more of a Christmas fair, even though winter hasn’t even begun.
Why are we hurrying so much?
Why am I hurrying so much?
It seems as if I am always living in the future. I have always done that, but blogging has made it so much worse.
Summer temps are still going through the roof and we are bringing out the pinecones.
The pinecones have had barely time to gather some dust before we are replacing them with fake snow and Christmas ornaments.
And by the time Christmas has finally arrived we are so sick of our tree that we are already designing Valentines displays and longing for chocolate Easter eggs.
All the time trying to keep up, to be the first with something, to not lag behind, to seize the ‘moment’.
I have started the Christmas craft bonanza and I am loving it.
And yet this big bowl of walnuts is taunting me to savor Fall, to live in the moment, to live now, to just be….
To seize THIS moment, for it will never return….
PS that winter/Christmas fair was really nice, I’ll show you some pics tomorrow and than I have also got some exciting news to share. But I am not quite ready to reveal it, so hang on….
