Time Will Tell...

"We say that time is the great equalizer and healer. 
It is, rather, a great deceiver, 

for we never forget the taste and fragrance
of beauty and bittersweet."

  1. Time has a way of dulling the edges... but those delights and hurts pop up when least expected.

  2. Ahhhh... something to ponder on.

    Perhaps we don't forget, but sometimes I ask will we look at beauty the same way? Will they hold our hearts the way it did in our youth?

    I don't know. I suspect I'll confront these questions ... time after time.


  3. I read somewhere that it isn't time that heals all wounds. It's what you do with the time that counts. It was something I had to chew on for a while, especially when it got dark. A year later, I realize the value of the truth. :/

    I love how these little lines of yours pack quite the punch, Rick.

  4. Ahh words of wisdom here much worth remembering.
