Make Time Stop Please
I just had the birds and bees discussion with my youngest child. I don't regret telling her. I am glad she knows. But I can't help feeling sad and sensing a speeding-up of time.
I feel like we have been clicking up the hill of a giant roller coaster. So far we've had a pretty easy ride. But now we are nearing the end of the enormous hill and the clicking has gotten louder and slowed a little in preparation for a giant thrust of speed and pressure and wind and change.
Could we just stop the ride for a while? I would like to stop and get out and walk down the emergency exit.
