Used to be rare but at middle age, the same feeling comes to me much more often now.

The feeling that as individual humans we have time? Well, we don’t.

Potentially being alive up to 60–90 years is not time. It’s a privilege. A one chance sneak-peek at life.

Realizing that truly makes me happy.

This morning I just felt like I was floating in bed. I kept falling back asleep and dreaming. I was becoming convinced that it had to be after noon I was sleeping so well.
I FINALLY got up…to my relief it was only 10:30. That was nice.
