Time passages*

Just yesterday, it dawned on me that January, and nearly one-twelfth of the year, has nearly gone.  With that, this morning, we notice that the angle of the sun has changed – it’s moved north and west.

Funny how time surreptitiously passes us by and we don’t notice until something happens.

I get the sense that many of us, of a certain age, have had that driven home to us in the last few days, particularly with the deaths of David Bowie and Glen Frey.  Both made music that is integral to the soundtrack of my life and when I hear it, I’m instantly transported back to those times.  Good and not so good.  All part of the fabulous fabric of life.

And this, picture not-so-surreptitiously added in, is of the interior of bowl, a gorgeous gift from nearly a year ago, and which continues to fascinate me, for its shape, texture and colour.  A surreptitious entry into Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge.

Finally, one of my favourite Bowie songs.  Dunno why.  And it includes fabulous instrumental bits – sax, violin, piano.

Last word

This post, surreptitiously prepared while I should have been working, is thanks to Linda’s unsurreptitious suggestion that I do something with today’s Just Jot It January prompt.

  1. Thanks for your entry in my photo challenge this week, Fiona. Just from seeing the inside of that bowl it does look very nice.
    Very sad about David Bowie and Glenn Frey. A death always seem to take everyone that encounters it, back.

  2. I am always amazed to realize how quickly time slips through my fingers, whether it is hours of the day, days of the month, or the better part of a year gone by when I awaken some October morning to realize the leaves are changing and it seems as if I just got the Christmas decorations put away! The older I get, the faster the merry-go-round of life seems to spin and I want to find a way to slow it down!
