“In the view of Infinity, any defined long-term is short-term.”
– from God
Emperor of Dune,
The older I get, the faster time flows. Days go by so quickly and now quicker than ever before. It wasn't always this way.
When I was a kid, an afternoon sometimes felt like an eternity. There was enough time to play and play my heart out until dinner. Every day felt like two whole days: one day spent at school and another at home.
Now my days pass faster and faster. Weeks go by within a blink. The last time I turned around, a year went by.
Family time. Weekends. Time alone. I crave much more of them. Once they're here, they're already almost gone.
The more I think of it, the more I realize how short my life is on this Earth. There is so much more I want to do: places to visit, conversations to have, and books to read. I don't know how long I'll be here, but I'm going to make every moment matter.
