Tear Another Page

When I was younger, I loved those little daily desk calendars. Often, they had quotes, sayings, or comics on them. Each day you could tear off a page and see a new inspirational quote or comic that would incite a giggle. My calendar is on my phone now and I no longer use those day-by-day calendars.

But I saw one the other day and it got me thinking of the passing of each day.

Each time you tear off a page, you throw it in the trash. The stack of days gets thinner. A few calendars allow you to write an agenda on each page. Most are too full of the calendar’s theme to allow note taking or planning. You are left unable to plan or record your day.

But each day the stack of pages grows imperceptibly gaunter.
