Two Years

Two years I've been writing this. Two years.

Most of you and I have known each other for most of that span.

Why is it so hard to believe, the constant flow of time?

Two years is great. Happy Anniversary! I admire your "stick-to-itiveness."

Because our friends never seem to age, that's why. Or what I think anyway.

Ari said...

True dat, Latty.

I know the feeling, seems like so much time has passed. Glad to have you on and to have gotten the chance to look inside your mind. Your a wonderful person and I wouldn't miss it for the world.

Speaking of that, I'm off for a vacation for the next week, I'll check in when I get back. take care and keep smiling.

Ari said...

Time does fly. And I still love reading you as much as I ever did.

Ari said...

I'm not really sure what we were doing 2 yrs ago, Dr. T. ;)

Thank you so, Renee. :)

Gary said...

You are right. It shouldn't be that hard to comprehend time passing . After all, it has been going on for at least 14 and 1/2 billion years. :)

I hope you have a nice, slowly passing week.

Ari said...

Thanks, Gary. :) I wish there was a throttle on time so I could make it run faster or slower according to my wish.

Happy belated anniversary! May there always be ink in your pen...or bandwidth in your cable...whatever...

Keep up the great blogging!

defiant goddess said...

Sending you some love. Hope you are well.

Ari said...

Thank you, thank you, Amanda and Renee.

time periods are imperceptible, but measurable. We measure time in different ways. So blogging for two years is maybe shorter than, let me think, being exciled in a country where they don't speak your language for two year, learning the language, getting a job with a troop of acrobats, falling in love with the ariel trapeze and becoming his partner. Falling pregnant, giving birth to an idiot savant who can lift elephants with his mind, and becoming the richest business woman in albania. In this case, you would probably look back and think "was it only two years since I got exiled?"

Indubitable, Helga.
By the way, you are superlative.
