Very quietly and very quickly February has sneaked upon us. It was only yesterday that we were wishing each other a new year and the year is already a month old. It is alarming how quickly time passes. Time also is very persistent and the changes it causes are so subtle in nature that we don't even realise them. Its only when you look back at your wedding album that you realise how different and older you look and that in a year or two, your own kids will complete their college. I can't stop that from happening but I can definitely try to live a life where I won't feel - when i look back - that all those years were wasted on unimportant things.
