The older I get, the faster time goes. And it seems that I recall my mother’s words more often. Remember when Christmas was two years apart? You couldn’t wait for the next one, but it felt like it would never come? That was about the time I was measuring myself every other day. I desperately wanted to be tall.
Mom always said, “A watched pot never boils.”
Now I hardly get the decorations back in their respective places ( having to stand on a box ) before I’m hauling the stuff out again—déjà vu (My new favorite word. I have to use it often, or I forget how to do the accent marks ) But everything seems like déjà vu anymore. I mean everything!
Just to say, I write short stories now and then when I’m busy. I need to experience that feeling of finishing something . . . you know what I mean? So, I’ve put a few of my short works in book form.
Of Different Minds is a collection that can be read in those odd moments while waiting on something or someone. With time so precious and fleeting, it’s a shame not to put our ‘waiting time’ to use or pleasure. I keep something to read with me always. Even when working on my old, slow Mac and sometimes have to wait for it to move along . . . I read to keep from throwing it out the door.! 🙂

Keep God in your plans, in your thoughts, and in your heart!
Mare, I’m so glad you did this. I always liked these little stories. Woman’s Day should publish these!!!
Thanks, Marsha! I’ve thought about putting those little shorts together for some time. I like the stories too, so finally got around to it. 🙂
Good for you! These stories look terrific. It’s why I like flash fiction too – great for reading while waiting at the dentist’s office, or while the pasta is cooking. 🙂
So true, Roughwighting! And I can’t stand to just wait—I really do read when I’m downloading and my computer is slow.:-)

Thank you, Jenny! Your words are always so encouraging! I understand the getting bogged down with your reading—I’m in the same situation. I have to fight for my reading time.
