I was trolling through Instagram and saw I post that was posted "8 weeks ago". My first reaction was nothing - 8 weeks...I can count those on two hands. But then I stopped and considered what "8 weeks ago" was: two months ago it was May and I was still in throws of the academic year. May is a month that screams "Almost there!" yet require patience as we decide if it's still spring or finally summer.
What strikes me is not the math - yes, 8 weeks is two months - but rather our perception of time. We can all remember what we did last week and then the previous week and so on.... But I think what really jars us is when we're caught off guard and what seems like "yesterday" happened many yesterdays ago.
Anniversaries. Memorials. Milestones. Reminders.
Our minds are particularly adept at trickery. Or maybe we're just more adept and trying to trick our minds.
My thoughts and reactions to the world in which we live...completely biased and unfiltered.
