weekends away: these were the happiest days / 2

remember when forever seemed just fine? / seen through glasses of rose coloured wine / they'd sit up all night talking / now she's sound asleep to the sound of his walkman (the lucksmiths - southernmost)

before we got on this trip i had completely forgotten what freedom ment to me. that it had a lot to do with being outside, having time to do things in my own time. everyday life in the city passes so quickly without any time to look over your shoulder and see all the things that are beautiful. you need time to see those things. i think i kind of lost that within those long last winter. we didn't see the sun for months and i need sun to see clearly. the factor of time and the factor that it is passing so fast has been irritating me for a long, long time and i always thought that it is my fault because i work so hard and do so many things at the same time that i never find time to stand still and look or listen around. i thought if i finally would have time to be a little slower, time would pass less quickly. well - it does not. you can't change time. but you can fill it with doing your best in living your life the way you love it. you can try not to rush through it. you can try to see things you didn't have time before... at least that's my plan.

  1. Oh, I hear you:) Sometimes it's not easy to concentrate on the most essential. I try to make things slowly, without too much rush. It's all about learning, I think...
