My Superhero Power: Time Manipulation

Summer makes me nostalgic.  It makes me want to slow down time so that I can savor each new memory.  If I were a superhero, that is what my power would be, time manipulation.

Driving home from my family’s house tonight, my husband and I talked about our differing perceptions of time.  For him, life moves at just the right speed, which makes me envious.  I guess you do not have to be a superhero to appreciate life properly.  Still, I’m not sure how to slow down.  It feels like there are more things I want to do than there is time to do them.

I think this is part of why I like to write so much.  It gives me the space to trap myself in time.

Tonight I want to trap myself in new summer memories.  I want to hold them to my heart so that everyone in them will be with me always.  If I could figure out a way for summer dinners to last longer, I would.  Instead, it is the words and pictures that are left.

    I totally agree with you. Time goes so fast…especially summer. I get bummed as summer slips away (one week gone already!?! ) so I am trying super hard to enjoy every moment. You are not only a great writer but also a great photographer!

      Yes! I find myself counting each day to force myself to appreciate every moment. Thanks for the sweet words. I’d love to have a great camera to capture everything– someday!
