One song plays in my head on wistful days……days like the first of October. Time creates diamonds and time creates rust. No amount of money stops time and no amount of wishing can bring it back.
October is a good month for diamonds and rust……the sparkling sun dappling through the rust colored leaves….savoring their last moments of time.
As we age, we have to be like those leaves…..the sun and shade, the happiness and sorrow dapples through our lives. I have lost many friends since the last rust colored leaves soaked up the sun.
I was supposed to attend a wonderful wedding next Saturday; my friend died this past Valentine’s Day. Now his bride to be will spend Saturday in wistfulness, wishing she could bring back time and might have beens. He was such a loving man, it is appropriate a day of love is one when he will be remembered each year. I lost a good friend and fellow artist and I lost several of my beloved dogs…..my children at this time in my life.
Water sparkles on a surface just like diamonds before it rusts……just like the water, we have to sparkle in the sun. Even though time brings more sadness, it also brings new joy if you don’t hide your heart in the shade……let it shine in the sunlight times. There will be time enough for rust and wish for might have beens…………….
