time flies message

Hello and thanks for sharing your precious time here!

I am not flying a great flight plan in the time management department.  Are you?  Please share your secrets!  I would love to hear from you in the comments section.

Did I ever tell you about my adventures in ground school?  I was a great student in the classroom but my skills didn’t translate so well to actually flying a plane.  That is another story for another day.  But one thing I learned about flying that I remember vividly….

Plan the Flight; Fly the Plan.

Of course once a flight plan is filed, even the most brilliant pilots have to adjust their plans in the air due to ice, turbulence, pop-up storms or whatever obstacles emerge during the flight.  I love the concept of determining a destination and at least planning for the route to get there (recognizing course corrections are inevitable).

I landed in California yesterday.  I love the false sense of “making” time after leaving the Central Time Zone and entering the Pacific!

I wish I could plant seeds so more creative time would bloom in our lives.

I also wish that we could always, always honor time for the precious commodity that it truly is.

Just thinking about time management led me… to well, fulfilling an idea I had about up-cycling a clock.     After disassembling a clock, I gained access to the protective bubble barrier of the clocks’ mechanics. Adding a transparent photo to the inside was simple.  The challenge was putting it all back together again!  I glued a crown embellishment to the clock and called it completely customized.

This was a labor of love (it’s a gift).

I wish I could make one for you.  I just might take “orders”!  Stay tuned.  Go embrace the moments of the weekend stretching before you!

I leave you with a Green Day hit from 1997.

Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life)*

Another turning point, a fork stuck in the road
Time grabs you by the wrist, directs you where to go,
So make the best of this test, and don’t ask why
It’s not a question, but a lesson learned in time.

It’s something unpredictable, but in the end is right,
I hope you had the time of your life.

So take the photographs, and still frames in your mind
Hang it on a shelf in good health and good time.
