Every Day Lasts Forever

When I look back at my teen years, every memory is marked by one thing - the feeling that that day was forever. Years that didn't go fast or slow, because a year is a year no matter how you measure it, were made up of eternal days.

I wrote through those days. Not all the important things, but things. Words. Thoughts.

Every moment was huge. It was the moment.

Slowing down and waiting something out didn't seem like an option.

I'm well past those years now, but sometimes those eternal days still show up.

Sunday was one of those days. A long car ride with music and stories and laughing about sheep. Dreaming of different places to live and words to be written. Each leaf of every tree hit by the light from the slowly melting sun was a poem.

I think I could have stayed in that car forever. Or maybe I did stay there.

The road calls to me with no destination in mind, and each time I answer that call it is harder and harder to turn back toward home.

One day forever might not end.


  1. Love this and you! I hope you do stay there.

  2. So glad you shared this, that you let us peek inside a perfect, forever kind of day with you.

    I am wishing you lots of days like that.

  3. LOVE THIS! So so much!
    I would love to have one of those drives, where time stands still and stretches into eternity. Where there are no worries and the world seems full of possibilities.
    Thank you for sharing, my love, this was just what my heart needed today.

  4. I love this. I know exactly what you mean. I used to write and write and write and I could totally relate and feel what you're talking about. :)

  5. Great reminder of pursuing those dreams we once had or even just to take that time to dream freely even now. Wonderful post!

  6. love this! great reminder! thank you so much for sharing:))
