Time Slips Away

Andrew WeidmanWhere has the time gone? I recently realized I've been neglecting Life in the Fast Lane.

I knew it had been a while; I just didn't expect to find I hadn't posted since January 20th 2017. An entire year has passed, plus change.

Sure, I could make excuses: Life got in the way. Deadlines needed to be met. Work demanded more attention. And they were all true — to a point.

Then there were the rabbit holes and procrastinating. I've been spending more time outside with my camera, photographing birds and other wildlife. I also made two fairly major trips last year, to Monticello in Virginia in May, and to the Northern Tier of Pennsylvania in August.



One trip was in celebration of 22 years of the best decision I ever made, asking Jessie to marry me. The other was for my middle son's 19th birthday, hiking State Parks and photographing a solar eclipse, or at least as much of the eclipse as we could reach (about 60 percent occlusion).

Andrew, it's' good to see you back on the GRIT blog. I saw your GRIT articles for GRIT magazine over the last year. I say time keeps slipping into the future and we will catch up with it soon enough. I have to say that I haven't kept up with my blogging either private or GRIT. It's kind of the same reasons as you. I didn't think anyone would be interested in my boring life. ***** Sounds like you have been busy with family. I will be attending a college graduation for my oldest grand daughter. Talk about time slipping away. It hardly seems that could be possible. ***** The garden year has finally started here and time will be in short supply compared to the needed time for the priority list of things to do. ***** Have a great catching up with time day. ***** Nebraska Dave
