100 Words: From one countdown to another

Mind's made up - off to London I go.

I see the confused look of concern and agreement on the faces of my friends. Those who are staying - the majority - would have me change my mind. Understandable.

As I get older, the cold fact of running out of time to do the things I want to do, has become a source of constant anxiety.

I realize time waits for no one and is a finite resource.

Time is the greatest asset of all and like any asset, the more we have the more the comfort.

I do not wish to waste time, although I know time is wasting me with its subtle and unstoppable countdown.



  1. Are you leaving for good, or a short visit? Would be tough to leave such a beautiful place but only you can decide for "you."

  2. I intend to return for good, although I'll always visit Madeira as often as possible.I can't get used to being away from my kids - my number one priority. I'll let you know when I'm in your neighbourhod and maybe we can have a pint and a chat :)

  3. I love the hourglass pic that accompanies this piece. Very apropos. Great blog Joe!!

    1. Thanks and thanks for dropping by :)
