I have had the song, “Time Warp” swirling around in my head all day long. You know the song, from the movie, “The Rocky Horror Picture Show.” So then of course I had to recap, via Google search, the actors who portrayed the fictional characters from the cult classic. But really, all of the info I just now shared is irrelevant to the subject at hand. Though my sharing it does give one insight into the nuttiness with which I constantly live…inside myself!
The real reason I have the song stuck in my head is that I feel as if I am living in a time warp. I honestly cannot keep track of time. It seems to fly by me without so much as leaving a note. My son moved into his own apartment February 1st, it is only the beginning of May, yet it feels like he moved out only a few days ago. Then at other times it seems longer.
My little brother married his fiance this past weekend. The wedding plans have been on all of the family radar for the past 9 months, and just like that, it’s over. We spent the entire weekend together down in San Diego, all of us crazies piled into the same hotel (minus my son), and yet the festivities flew by.
My mom came into town last Monday, visiting from Nicaragua where she now lives. I can’t believe all that we were able to “do” while she was here, and yet today I could hardly remember what those activities were…my husband helped pin a few down. She left us this afternoon, our time together is over (for now).
As I travel within this warped space in time, I find myself struggling to catch a breath. My cousin comes into town this coming weekend for a visit. My sister flies into town the weekend after. I will travel north a few days after that. My sister will then return in the beginning of June to cover for us as we head out of the country visiting two continents for a month on business. Yes, I did write one month. And upon our return from that excursion I will begin a new full time job. How is all of this even possible?, I find myself asking. And how do I ensure I do not miss one wink of the experiences within all of the travel opportunities/familial visits?
I don’t have the answer to my question…not today anyway, for I am still reeling over the fact the wedding has passed. Which is probably why The Time Warp is playing over and over again in my mind. Especially the line which repeats, “let’s do the time warp again.”
It’s just a jump to the left, and then a step to the right, put your hand’s on your hips…
P.s. What ever happened to Peter Hinwood aka Rocky Horror?!P.s.s I’ve opted to not post the link to the video of the song…purposefully! 😉
