waiting for the high tide...

Posted by
Phil (halifax, Canada) on 2 September 2011 in Abstract & Conceptual and Portfolio.

Sometimes it feels like we spend most of our lives waiting. Waiting in line...for service...for the bus...for the taxi...for the right time...

And waiting has to do with time.

I'm past the half century mark and I've watched a number of friends and loved ones pass on. I've come to realise that time is the one thing we do NOT have a lot of! Whether you are 15 years old or 50 years old!

At fifteen years old I found the idea of 25 years stretching out in front of me to be terribly long! At fifty I find the same idea to tragically short!

I guess it's all about perspective...where in the line up you stand.
