If this ain’t love, why does it feel so good?
—From Groovejet (If This Ain’t Love) by Spiller featuring Sophie Ellis Bextor
Seconds, minutes, hours, and days; weeks and months; and then years. This is the slow, relentless march of time. Without pause and apology it continues to move forward.
Most of it is spent trying to keep ahead of bills, of the costs of living—correction, the costs of dying—and trying to save for a future that is yet to come.
Time is a scary thing.
But that is no way to live, in fear of each passing second or fleeting hour. Inevitability should be embraced like an old friend. It has to be faced as a worthy and challenging adversary. It needs to be greeted politely, with respect, but not undue reference.
And, sometimes, it is necessary to let time fly on while you escape the daily constrictions of life and enjoy the small moments. The sunshine, the breeze, the beach, the soft sand—the moments when you can look up at the sky and realise all that glitters is, indeed, quite good.
All That Glitters Is Good is a playlist by Séraphin Turihamwe from The Eternal Audience Of One, a novel by Rémy Ngamije, now available at all fine bookstores and Amazon.
