How many times have I counted down?
Until the first day of school,
Until I got my bike,
until I got my dog,
until we moved,
until the first day of school,
until we moved,
until the first day of school,
until we moved,
until the first day of school,
until I grew up,
to get away,
to get away,
to get away,
to find a way,
to overcome,
to join in,
to enjoy,


"No soul is desolate as long as there is a human being for whom it can feel trust and reverence."
George Eliot

I think I've been there. Many times, actually.

Too many times.

David, this is wonderful, and you should really consider posting more.

Peace and love, brother,

I think all of us have been there, over and over. There's always been something better out there, on its way.

The countdown is over. Enjoy life now.

Scot's right. I'd also like to see more of your writings.

Count down is a new thought for me. I appreciate it. Sometimes the countdown is the only hope we have. Yet, so often, when the day came, it did not change a lot--for me that is.


If we do not live what we believe, then we will begin to believe what we live.

what you are counting down to, it will be fine. Try to see the time before as time of anticipation, not dread.
