Day 2188: I’m very aware of the passage of time

I’m very aware of the passage of time, as I took time to express in a therapy group exercise about time.


Are you very aware of the passage of time?  Do you believe that you have all the time you need? Do you rush and get very anxious because of time? I’m very aware that the passage of time affects everybody.

I’m very aware of the passage of time in my other photos from yesterday.






I’m very aware that I notice more over the passage of time.  What do you notice, during this very precious time?

I’m very aware of the passage of time that’s bringing me closer to the first Friday of the month, which means it’s time for me sing a new original song at a local Open Mic.  I’m very aware that I need to choose between “Don’t Call Me” and “It’s Not Me.”

I’m very aware that I haven’t yet shared the lyrics of “It’s Not Me.” I will, after sharing this passage-of-time song:

I’m very aware of how much time passed before I found “Time Has Come Today” by the Chamber Brothers. Feel free to pass the time by sharing your favorite song about the passage of time, below.

Before any more passage of time, here are  lyrics for “It’s Not Me.”‘

It’s Not Me

by me, Ann Koplow

It’s not me resenting

the mistakes of the past.

It’s not me presenting

why our love shouldn’t last.


It’s not me who’s judging,

It’s not me keeping score.

It’s not me begrudging

Saying “you should do more.”


It’s not me who’s hurting,

It’s not me feeling bad.

It’s not me deserting

All the good things we’ve had.


It’s not me complaining

From dusk until dawn.

It IS me explaining

That it’s me, moving on.

I’m very aware of the passage of time as I ask for comments and express my thanks to all  (including YOU!) who have helped me in my blogging passages, over time.

  1. I think every day that you make the most of every minute, Ann.
    And, my, how time does go by quickly.

  2. I’m very aware of your great lyrics Ann. May the passage of time help you decide which song to sing 💛

    • As time passes, Val, I’m very aware of how great you are to me. The passage of time HAS helped me decide which song to sing. ❤

  4. Thank you for this awakening post. ⌒°(❛ᴗ❛)°⌒

    I enjoyed your lyrics for your new song, “It’s Not Me,” but I hope you know that it’s you I come here for. 🙂

  6. I’m aware of time’s passage in ways I wasn’t when I was younger. It’s soooooo fast now. There are so many good time songs, but this is the first one I thought of:

  7. It only took me a few minutes to read the lyrics of “It’s Not Me” but that was time well spent—and I didn’t even realize time’s passage as I read it. Time doesn’t fly when you’re having fun: it seems to disappear entirely.

  8. Can you please tell me why time passes so much faster now than it did in the 1940s?

    Great poem, Ann! Very talented.

  10. Time marches on and as it does we all grow older and the older we get t he faster it marches

  12. I meant to comment yesterday but time got away from me as it often does these days. Anyway, I love your lyrics.

  13. The lyrics you’ve shared are truly special, Ann. I like the last stanza with the direction of moving on, not just stuck complaining about a relationship or anything else, for that matter. Moving on. I’m very aware of time passing. Sometimes a little too aware, if that makes sense! But I’ve recently been experimenting with slowing my own paces down considerably, and in doing so, I have felt that my days have a length to them that otherwise I lose in the faster pace. This year I want to conscientiously practice a slower physical presence and a quieter mind. There is more sand in the bottom of my hourglass than the top. I don’t want to rush through it! Yikes! 🙂
