the days add up

"How we spend our days, of course, is how we spend our lives." Annie Dillard

I digest those words and immediately feel guilt. I'm not sure I live the life I value; so many of my days are spent just getting through. I wrestle with the inner woman. She wears a large red S on her purple spandex suit....which fits like a glove, by the way, and shows off her svelte lines.

And the thing about life is, it is so daily. I know all too well that how I account for my life will be a culmination of how I account for my days . It is in the small things, the details that add up to the whole.

I value truth and integrity. I do my best to do what I said I would do when I said I would do it. That woman in the purple does so much of what I envision I could do with time, energy and money. The outer one is the real deal, just me moving through the hours.

Wow, again you just blow me away with your profound thinking and excellent writing.

Ditto on all that you expressed so elequently. That's about as profound as I can get.
