Life's a blurrrrr

"Life's a Blurrrr..." 5 x 7 watercolor, 140 lb Fabriano Artistico extra white cold press paper
"Fast."
How to capture today's #WorldWatercolorMonth's daily prompt? 
We know what 'fast" is, but it's relative, as is "slow," as an adjective (food, cars), or as a creature (humans, cheetas), or as time--whatever that is. We all have different images.
The first that comes to my mind is the roadrunner, state bird of New Mexico, though we have them here  too. I always think seeing one is a good omen, and I've had some two-roadrunner kinds of days driving the back roads here in central Oklahoma.
I've painted them before, but this called for a different approach....
