it’s been a long time – mth jul 2011

 (Our Topic to Ponder)


The expression, “It’s been a long time…” brings to my mind recollections of past

events, events that seemed to have been lost with the passage of time. But, as memories come to mind, I am left thinking, “It’s been a long time since I’ve been there.” or “It’s been a while since I’ve seen that person.” or “It’s been a long time since I’ve thought about that.” Almost always I then think, “Where did all the time go?”

Time has many faces and measurements. It seems pain and anticipation can cause time to linger, whereas joy and pleasure may allow time to slip by quickly.


James (See also his one-liner.) adds, “These days, weeks and months seem to fly by.”
