Tick Tock

Lately, I've had my head in the clouds.

I've been preoccupied with so many different things.

In addition to being really super busy with my camera club,
I've been distracted by thoughts about life in general.

My mind is focused on the connections I have with the people I love.
I've been thinking about how easy it is to take them for granted
and how time is like a thief in the night.

The hand of time keeps on moving.
It robs us of precious moments while we're not looking
and when we finally take notice
it's almost too late.

We do what we can to replace those stolen moments
all the while berating ourselves for the shoulda, coulda, would haves.

Time marches on and we step in line and march right along with it
making the most of the second and third and fourth chances that time has given back to us.

Time is a contradiction.
It moves so slowly yet goes by so fast.


We all must make our own moments count
because if we don't,
 we'll regret missing out on some really amazing connections.


  1. guess what ?
    we started a camera/photography club.....and i'm so excited !
    it's nothing like yours.....
    because none of us have any idea what we're doing...but I think it will be a blast !

    we have lots of newbies who know nothing about photography, but have nice cameras....oh how i love to teach :)

  2. Well said. Glad the camera club is keeping you active!

  3. That's a lovely post, JarieLyn. You call it time with head in the clouds, I call it navel gazing. I don't do so much of it these days, have found so many other ways to waste my time. Glad you are enjoying your camera club!

  4. I love this pic!

    I wish they had a camera photography class or club in our area. I'd love to learn more.

  5. nice pic girlie! enjoy the club and thanks for sharing your pics.

  6. I really enjoyed your thoughts and the picture. I love the line you wrote that says, "Time is a contradiction.It moves so slowly yet goes by so fast." How true.
