The morning view of Mt. Mestas from my house. September 10, 2014

What the heck happened? It’s 36˚ outside this morning! That’s 2.2 celsius for my international peeps. It’s only September 12 and I’m sure when the clouds lift, our surrounding peaks will have snowy white caps. I learned that in Alaska the first few high elevations snows are called termination dust indicating summer has ended. We are most certainly getting termination dust. cheap nfl jerseys Where did the summer go? How can things change so fast? Maybe I should ask…”Where did life go?”

September 12, 2014 and Mt. Mestas is hidden.

Time marches on and I certainly can’t stop it. Time is both our enemy and our friend. Time is all that we really have. Time is what we sell to earn an cheap jerseys income. Income is what we have to buy things. Time is what some people invest in order to grow and manage a garden in order to harvest their sustenance. Time is simply put, the best gift you have ever been given. It is a treasure and should be spent wisely. We all have a start date and an end date. It’s what we do between those two dates that is our own time. Our time is what we call life! And boy does life change.

For years I was not much more than a skinny runt. I was never sick. Had no allergies. Could eat as much as I wanted without gaining a pound. I was energetic. I was also  struggling to just get by. I had a somewhat productive music career that sustained me – sort of. Music was my passion. Music had always been my passion. It was my life. Back in those days quilting was not even on the horizon.

Then something happened. It just happened. I was gifted my Granny’s old 1955 Sears Kenmore sewing machine and I thought I would take it for a spin. Who knew that would be such a pivotal day in my life?  My music continued for a few years – it was my career. While I was walking through the shifting sands in life, I somehow transitioned into a quilter. Seriously? How did that happen? Who would have thought? The strangest thing is that there really wasn’t much of a change inside of me. That’s because I’m an artist at heart. I was born to be creative. I’m happiest when I’m pursuing a vision or an idea of any sort and turning it into reality. Quilting was just a new addition on a list of creative endeavors I replica oakleys enjoyed. The difference where quilting is concerned is that it became my primary career. #stillstunnedafteralltheseyears.

Only two days ago the morning brought beautiful color and clouds to the valley swirling beneath the Fake Oakleys top of Mt. Mestas. Today is gray and dismal – it’s dreary and wet. I can’t see any mountains. Nonetheless, I’ve lived long enough to know that tomorrow will be a new day fake ray bans – a new adventure. That’s just how life is – we roll with the punches and do what we do – trying not to let the changes effect us in any adverse way.

Yesterday I was skinny, foolish, bedecked with a quaff, and scattered. ação Today I’m more plump, nearly bald, coping with issues that effect those of us of a certain age, but I’m more wise and still very ambitious. Tomorrow? I dunno. The forecast is for sun and warmer weather! I look forward to that. In my brief rambling today I’m reminded that one thing is certain – nothing ever stays the same.

  1. I so enjoyed your ‘rambling’… it is probably what many of us think about all the time – I know I do! Thank you for sharing your perceptions Ricky!

    • Well – you know how drab weather can get a person all sentimental and melancholy. – lol.

  2. Sometimes I find it difficult to deal with changes. The older I get the more frequent the changes…aging parents, deaths of loved ones, different health issues. It keeps coming but we try to make the best of it before our time comes to an end. I’m thankful for each day as it comes, change and all..

    • I totally agree!!! Thankful for life – thankful for each day.

  3. I too was in the writing mood this morning. I love when the seasons change and it always energizes me. I want to sew, make apple pies, and paint. Loved your post. Now I have a cozy fire going.

  4. Thanks so much, Ricky for those thoughts. I try to live my life so when the end comes, I won’t have (m)any woulda, shoulda, coulda.

  5. Thank you, my thoughts exactly for today. I’m in FL and it is hot but I appreciate every day.

  6. Ricky, I have always said that change is the only constant in our lives. I have learned to appreciate what I have right now and realize that most, if not all, of the things I don’t really like at any given time, are probably temporary. This too, shall pass.
    You are so right, time is our enemy and our friend! Thanks for the reminder.

    • thanks for chiming in – a visit is far to long overdue.

  7. Ain’t it the truth! I enjoyed your ramblings. Who’d have thought where we would be and how our friendship came about more than 20 years ago now. Your friendship and encouragement over the years has meant so much to me. Thank you!

    • … and thank you too!!! Hugs from Colorado.

  8. At times I feel like a race horse. Running, racing down the track to get to the finish line. My life is past the half way mark and approacing the 3/4 length turn. I feel I need to run faster, work harder, and do all I can do to reach goals and accomplish dreams. With each turn around the track there are changes. Not looking back to the past but going to look forward to what is ahead. I have my blinders on, am going to stay focused and not let things around me become a distraction. When I reach my finish line, I want the checkered flag to be waving and know I have enjoyed a great life and done all that I could have possibility done with the abilities God has given to me. I am going to continue to run hard, play hard, enjoy all life has to offer, until it is time for my checkered flag to be waving in the wind. You are so right. Time is a very precious gift and we need to manage and use it wisely, to win our race, and cross the finish line with a victory.

  9. Perfectly said. You have succeeded at both, musician and quilter. You are an artist. You have a beautiful legacy. You are a good person. These things do not change. All the other, surface. Surfaces wear. Surfaces erode and change. But these changes affect us. Sometime making us think we need to speed up to reach our goals. But then we don’t appreciate the moment. Step back relax, it really is all okay in the end. So says your elder!.. lol….

  10. Yesterday must have been a day to reflect. I became a great aunt for the sixth and seventh time. Whoo Hoo twin boys Jake and Clay. I began thinking how my Aunthood has been such a pleasure. Now my nieces are becoming aunts. How blessed I am and Jake and Clay are to be part of a family who knows how to love so totally. Yes, the time has flown by, but with each progression different joys are experienced. I both laughed and cried over past times. I will laugh and cry in the future. That’s life.

    The quote that I thought of as I read your thoughts is “Life is what happens while we are making other plans.”

    I am glad you and Justin passed through my life.

  11. Shall I be serious or frivolous?
    Seriously….this is my prayer for you – COMFORT on difficult days – SMILES when sadness intrudes – RAINBOWS to follow the clouds – LAUGHTER to kiss your lips – SUNSETS to warm your heart – HUGS when spirits sag – FRIENDSHIPS to brighten your being – BEAUTY for your eyes to see – FAITH so that you can believe – CONFIDENCE for when you doubt – PATIENCE to accept the truth – COURAGE to know yourself – LOVE to complete your life.
    Thanks for sharing your thoughts! I’ll come back later with frivolity!

  12. You are right, and we should be grateful for ever second we have. Time goes by faster for me every year!

  13. Seeing your picture of the clouds & snow capped mountain made me homesick for CO. I would love to see some green, tall trees, lakes and the beauty God created there. Living in the desert has made me appreciate all those things, except shoveling snow or getting stuck in it. Today we had 100* temp and might cool off to the high 70s tonight. In 2 weeks, we are off to a Fall Foliage Cruise up the east coast, so I will get my fix of cooler temps and lots of color.

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts so concisely and clearly. You have so many talents, to which you might add writer.
