"Seems like day after day goes by like nothing
is ever going to change
then just like overnight it's like
it ain't never going to be the same"
- Todd Snider
7 years gone, hard to believe its been seven years.
I still fish when I get down here, but somehow it's just not the same. There are times that it feels like I carry a heaviness tucked into my back pocket while I wander the rivers now.
Sometimes I look around and all I see is loss.
I'm not the first person to grow older and lament the passing of time, and I won't be the last.
But it sure does seem like its happening all too fast right now. The land and the world you once knew disappearing like a handful of sand through your fingers.
Mostly I feel a sense of gratitude for the chance to have seen it at all.
