When I look at myself in the mirror the reflection staring back at me is one of my 18 year old self; young, thin, full head of hair, with eyes bright enough to catch a glimpse of my future; I eagerly anticipate the next chapters of my life. The start of this year has presented me with the realization that time waits for no Wo/Man.
Reminders that the years have passed.

Time is a valuable asset. You can educate your children, reunite with others, celebrate the lives of those that pass, you can even find a new person to love ... only time is not renewable.
