No more slow-motion world

Today's 100 words:

It's nearly the middle of September, and I don't understand how the days and weeks speed by like this, so fast--zip, zoom--and then they're gone, and suddenly it's another month with its own zipping and zooming, days and weeks that come too fast and go too fast--out of control, really, and not at all like what they were when I was a child and the months used to crawl by, a day seeming like a week, a month like a year as I waited in eager anticipation for something--anything--to happen in my slow-motion world.


  1. What a wonderful 100 words. Really loved today's, I've been thinking about this later.

  2. Thanks so much, Caitlin! This is one of my favorite of the 100-words exercises I've written. :)
