My Relationship With Time

by on Jul.15, 2010, under Random Writings on Relationship

Last night I was in a writing circle that was around a virtual campfire.  It was led by vivacious, ingenious Julie Jordan Scott.  Julie directed us from her state of CA, while the rest of us were writing in other parts of the world. Our imagination keeps us together around a creative campfire that sparks our souls.

While Julie gave us two prompts in a row, this is the prompt that prompted this post: “The writing I will harvest today is … “

The writing I will harvest today is the moment I am in. On this clear evening, I can smell the honeysuckle as I observe the sun’s rays at a lower angle, highlighting the side of my house instead of the roof. Still, the strong sun makes its descent in the sky in these few hours before twilight. I love this time of day.

If a day is compared to a lifetime, how much time does my life have? Is this the stage my life is in? If all goes well, I can count on a few more decades before twilight time. Has my sun, or energy, peaked? What year was that exactly? I had not noticed.

On reflection I do not think my important energy is waning, even while the hour is way past noon and the years are adding up. In a day, I am very productive even between the time the sun sets and the time sleep sets in. So I can do plenty when the decades continue. Those years will be like this beautiful time of day when the sky is getting ready to dress up for the sunlight’s long passage through the atmosphere. The sky celebrates with spectacular colors.

Even when the sunlight disappears below the horizon and envelops the outdoors, my inner lights keep me going. I love the moment I am in.

“Writing is the first step in the transformation of our intangible love to the tangible form.” – D. Richard Bellamy

Until love moves into words it remains a feeling that an individual alone can access or nurture.  It does not communicate.  If love is never expressed in words or deeds, it is a fantasy.   Writing gives it depth, length, height, and aliveness.  There’s a physical, mental, and physical dimension added to the emotional when it is on paper.   It allows us to see, experience and understand.   From there we can shift love to a deeper level.   That love becomes tangible since it can be experienced in a new way.

Besides the usual description of love as an emotion, there is love as commitment.   The latter love has less emotion and more action. Commitment is tangible love.  So is writing.
