Rat's Races

Wasn't it just Halloween and now Thanksgiving and Christmas are here and I haven't begun shopping? Some of the kids will be here for Thanksgiving and we'll exchange gifts then. I STILL HAVEN'T BEGUN SHOPPING. The train is going too fast again, still. Are we rushing too much as usual?

I wanted to enjoy Autumn, do a painting with fall colors. I missed it, almost. I need to hurry, as usual. I plan to sit outside today, if it's not too cold, and enjoy the falling leaves before they're gone. How do you slow down the world, make the rat race stop and savor life as it is at that moment? Remember, as Lily Tomlin said, "Even if you win the rat race, you're still just a rat."
