Chasse au trésor

“Time passes irrevocably.”   –  Virgil


“Time passes, and little by little everything that we have spoken in falsehood becomes true.”   –  Marcel Proust


“If you want an interesting party sometime, combine cocktails and a fresh box of crayons for everyone.”   –  Robert Fulghum



Chasse au trésor

There is no map to guide

This treasure hunt

Intuition – my trusted

And only compass

De nombreux cadeaux attendent

My discovery

Each New Year

Filled with possibilities,

Challenges, opportunities

Each day precious

Slipping through my hands

I cannot hang on to them

Nor save in a vault

Moments fly away

Sable dans le vent

    Time is slipping through your fingers like dry sand.
    You can’t keep it.

    each moment that passes in time, make it a good one
    for the memories is what is left behind…
    Beautiful thoughts you share…I always enjoy the peacefulness of each
    visit within here…
    Thank you for being you…
    Take Care…You Matter…
