The Winds of Time

Time is 
too slow for those who wait,             
too swift for those who fear, 
too long for those who grieve, 
too short for those who rejoice, 
but for those who love, time is eternity.
-Henry Van Dyke

Sometimes time moves in slow-motion...or stands still.  And you wonder why that is.  And you wonder why does this seem to happen in the hard times.
The good times...the great times of celebration and growth race by, leaving you dizzy in their wake of happiness.  Leaving you wanting to grab on and savior every moment before they escape between your fingers and get carried off by the winds.
But then again, sometimes it's the winds that carry in something new.  Something delightful and exactly what you want or need.  The thing never know what you're going to get...a variation on time or the dance of the winds.  You just never know.
