Halloween is over, and it’s November. Since when does that mean it’s automatically Christmas? Christmas commercials. Christmas movies. Countdown to Christmas. What about Countdown to Thanksgiving?! Why do we have to countdown to anything?! Can’t we just appreciate each day as it comes? It’s Monday. It’s November 7th. Enjoy this day. Savor what we have right now. This kind of started out as a rant, but it reminds me of a poem I wrote in college:

Passes us by
Without a word
Without a sound
Without a second thought
We are
Whisked through time
And never
Have a chance
To hold on
Or slow down
Until it is
Too late
And all we can do
Is look back

So, don’t rush it. Don’t push it. Just live it and be…
