The Pieces of Me
I am acutely aware of time ticking.
Of days passing me by.
Of seasons changing from summer to fall
to winter once again.
I want to grasp life -- to embrace it and make more of it -- but some days I just don't really know how.
I try not to say no out of fear.
I want to take in the small moments, make them indelible, hold them captive, tiny photographs in my brain,
while grabbing the huge moments with gusto, a big, shiny, sturdy brass ring.

I lawyer. I parent. I wife. I love.
Sometimes none of it feels like enough.
Sometimes, all of it feels like too much.
I am so many pieces. I am exhilarted. I am lacking. I am fulfilled. I am numb.
I let the waves embrace me.
I hold on for dear life.
I let go as much as I can.
I am acutely aware of time ticking
and the days passing me by.
