    Have you ever been in a time period...or maybe on a vacation...or enjoying a really great day...where you just would 've liked to reach up and hit the "pause button" to your life?

    (I can think of several in my case...Especially some summers when I was much younger...big_smile)

    Go on ahead...list, reminisce...mention one or two...or take a serious or humorous look at what you would'a "paused" in your life...if you could've ???

    My first thought was of how many hubs I could write while in pause mode! lol
    30 hubs in 30 days? Nah! 30 hubs a day! big_smile all during pause mode plus a nice nap then back to the daily stuff of life.

    I have had periods where I wished it could be like that movie ground hog day, just keep repeating over and over. So many summer days, with good friends and money in my pocket and no one to answer to, I could repeat those for a good long time! Nothing like a brilliant sunset on the beach with your good friends, a nice cozy fire to roast marshmallows, yummy nibbles and refreshing drinks. For a while there that was my standard friday afternoon/evening during the summer, that or the free concerts big_smile

    Quiet Sunday afternoons spent with innocent little grandchildren and my wonderful children. Sunday afternoons I spent in the garden with my own mother - too quickly her life on earth was over - wish I could have paused the last few carefree afternoons we had together.

    Life moves too fast and the hours in most days are just too short!

      I would like to have a "Pause" button...installed right to the "Snooze" button on my Alarm Clock...And...we also need a "Do-Over" button as well...for everything. (car wreck = do-over button...late to work...same thing!)

    No pause button for life.

    Life is too enjoyable to want it to pause. The power of love and nature is to be experienced and cherished, for the time in which they arrive and disappear.

    The pause button, would be useless, even for the most enjoyable times of your life, because then you wouldn't be able to move on to the next moment.

    It would be like the episode in Star Trek, the Next Generation, wide-screen movie, with James T. Kirk and the ribbon, which lead to the nexus. Where everything was always happy, it was based on old memories and a place where love was in abundance all the time.

    You would be trapping yourself in the past, instead of moving forward. smile

    Just a thought. smile

      I took the original remark to pause time and enjoy life...
