the edge of change

Do you ever feel as if your life will change?
Do you ever feel that change is just around the corner, that is, if you can get around that corner.
Maybe I am feeling this due to a  hypersensitivity, or a high or low pressure system. Maybe it is nerves or hormones or, who knows what?
Change happens when you least expect it, doesn't it?
Subtle change happens all the time, or does it?
Maybe nothing will change and time will just march on, the way it always has.
Except now, the boys are grown and gone, and well...change has occurred. For the first time in twenty two years I am, not necessarily free, but still, free.
It is a strange feeling. Very strange.

"All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another." Anatole France
