“Being in a hurry.

Getting to the next thing without fully entering the thing in front of me.

I cannot think of a single advantage I’ve ever gained from being in a hurry.

But a thousand broken and missed things, tens of thousands, lie in the wake of all the rushing…

Through all that haste I thought I was making up time.

It turns out I was throwing it away.”

    Just popping in to say Hi!. Skyped with Libby this morning so now I’m behind. Should I hurry? Or tarry by the wayside?

  6. Just Julie says:

    You should tarry. And we should Skype someday soon.

  7. Ganeida says:

    Ooooh! Really? We could do that? Luverly. Not this week though. The girl has been called in for a performance so rehearsals all the rest of this week & an overnighter without her mummy. 🙁 It’s rather a status thing though as dull as most of these things for most of the time. lol

  8. Just Julie says:

    I’m home a lot. Whenever it’s convenient…hello to the peanut gallery.
