"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

Can you believe that tomorrow we will officially be 1/3 of the way through the year? Seriously, 1/3 of the way through the year. How in the hell did that happen? And, OMG, I am sounding like my Grandma..."The older you get, the faster the time passes." Hehehe, it's kind of funny because I got into this discussion with Marty the other night. He was telling me about talking to my dad about how fast time seemed to pass sometimes. The Marty said, "I guess a year seemed like such a long time when I was 2 because it was half my life. Now, one year is only 1/14 th of my life. Of course, it seems like it would go by faster." Although I've thought the same thing myself, I've never heard it phrased in such a cut and dried manner. And, he claims he hates math.

I guess the Zoinks could also apply to me making it through this month of alphabet posts. There were a few times it was a stretch to find topics that started with the right alphabet letter but, overall, it was a good experience. I think it made me stretch a bit as a writer and I hit on some pretty good topics in other cases.

Now, I'm sure I could stretch this post out a little bit longer but I have never tried to write a specific amount. I just write until it feels good. And, right now, I'm fading fast. I spent the whole afternoon doing heavy duty yardwork and I need to go to bed.

Nigh y'all!

Zoinks indeed!
My hubs and I will be married for a year at the end of this month. It feels like no time at all. I think the more our lives fill with action - the faster time flies. Maybe sometimes it's better to be boring. :-)

Oh yes, having to find a post on every alphabet must be tough. You must have enjoyed it as well.

Last year flew by very fast for me. This year is just not registering in my psyche yet.

Congrats on making it through!

And you really blew my mind with that "1/3 of the way through the year" bit!
