The Clock Moved Too Fast

November 11th, 2009 by | Country: France | 3 Comments »


I don’t want to write this entry, but I feel the need to so that I can record my feelings for the sake of memories.  This past eight weeks lasted only a millionth of a second.  I have no clue how time flew by so fast.  It seems like it was just a few minutes ago when I unlocked the door to my home in Provence after walking up the hill, drenched in pouring rain and having just said “hello” to Finn and giving him a hug.  In spite of not having my suitcase as it got lost on the flight, all I could think about was being happy to be back in the school where I felt that I belonged and being in a very cozy bedroom.  The following morning, I headed to the market in Apt and was eager to greet some old faces including the leather man who makes special orders for me.  Since then, days whooshed  watching the sunrises, viewing the scintillating moon high in the sky, sitting in middle of a large vineyard, chatted with friends at a cafe until the wee hours, dancing at a Halloween party, standing under the Eiffel Tower, trekking to Avignon with my art history class, and photographing all of my wonderful surroundings.  As I reflect all of the memories of this past eight weeks, I feel as if I just flipped through the pages within a second.  Because I had so much fun and experienced many tremendous laughter, it is expected to feel as if the time flew by too much.  I apologize for repeating the thought of the time flying by so fast, but I just can’t understand why it did happen!

I know exactly what you mean. It’s like those stories about the land of Narnia, where the kids go in, live out an entire lifetime and grow old. Returning, they discover that only a few minutes has passed in the world they left behind.
