As I picked up my third gallon of milk this week, I thought about this Rachel Bone painting I recently saw (via Mav). I thought about it literally. The stacks of milk containers we are going through. The thousands more we will drink over the years to come. And I also thought about it in theory. How I try to "milk time." How I try to stick as much as possible into every minute. Try to do a million things while the kids nap rather than just sit, stare, breathe. And how I hold my boys close and hope they'll never get older while simultaneously calculating the precise moment when I'll be alone again.
Check out Rachel's lovely calendar, which includes this piece. Might make a good gift (for yourself).
