After something devastating happens like 911, it can seem impossible to move on. But time carries us away from that moment, even though in our minds we can feel like we’ve stopped there.
Different cultures look at time in different ways. I believe in American and Western cultures we think of time as moving us forward, but I’ve heard that some cultures tend to see the progression of time as moving upward.
So, I think it comes back to the recurring theme on this blog—it seems to be about growth. The sunflowers in my area in New Hampshire have grown so large and tall that they are bowing their heavy heads.
Today, I’m thinking about looking upward.
