Winding Down

I can’t believe it’s May 25.  In about a month, this school year will be over.  In about a week, the seniors will be taking their last final exam.  In many ways, time has gone by really fast.  In other ways, I cannot wait for it to go faster.  It’s an awkward time for me as I reflect on the accomplishments of the past school year, but at the same time, I am being pulled into the future when I think about all the exciting things ahead of me.

These days, I’ve been thinking about the seasons of life.  There was a time in my life when I tried to resist change, hanging on to what is safe and familiar and comfortable.  I think I’ve come to terms with the reality that change is inevitable and that life is a dynamic force, constantly transforming itself.  As good as the season might have been, it has to turn and bow to the cycle.  I am reminded of that poem by Robert Frost,

Nature’s first green is gold

Her hardest hue to hold.

Her early leafs a flower;

But only so an hour.

Then leaf subsides to leaf.

So Eden sank to grief,

So dawn goes down to day.

Nothing gold can stay.
