Thursday Tales: At the Spinning Wheel
"You move too fast," she muttered under her breath.
I sat on the doorstep with a cup of tea and watched her spin. "Hmm?"
"You move too fast. Life, you think you have to chase after it. That if you ever stop moving, it will go on without you and you'll miss some great thing that it has to offer. But you're wrong. You miss it when you never stop. Life will come to you. When you're always chasing after it, you miss all that lies around you."
She waved a hand to cut me off. "Life is in here." She tapped her heart. "In the people you love. In the people who love you. Quit moving." She grunted and nodded, pleased with the speech.
And she kept spinning.
