A walking to-do list, I am , these days
Always rushing to get more done faster
I glance at my watch frequently,
Relieved that I have a little bit ahead or
Panicked that I am behind
I set timers
All my appointments on Outlook at work ping their warnings on cue.
I even have a timer set( on my phone) to write this post
And so my days go by
To that persistent rhythm of time
I think of time... all the time
But then there is my child
Who makes me pause
Creates these oasis in my days ..
Where we do what we want to do
One of the best things that a Floortime Lifestyle has done for us really- is that it has legitimized "chasing butterflies" as my friend Tanya calls it
The other day we went outside into the gorgeous Spring day and did songs with things from nature
Somehow the time felt slower, more gracious , more leisurely
Here is a picture of him singing 5-6 pick up sticks
With him , I reset the tick tock background music into a differerent song
Reser it to an old favorite
Got no deeds to do,
No promises to keep.
I’m dappled and drowsy and ready to sleep.
Let the morning time drop all its petals on me.
Life, I love you,
All is groovy.
