You stop in time, and want time to stand still. The day goes dark, and you find yourself locking the door. Wasn’t I just going through this motion (or was that yesterday)? Linger on a moment, and you realize that time is slipping by without your express permission. Cherish time. Place fresh flowers and leaves around your space. Sip your favorite drink in the evening. caress your child’s cheeks. Smile at them even when you are angry. Remain calm and nurture your sentient self.
