Time rushing by

File:Border collie running down the beach at low tide.jpg
A leap year, so we “gain” an extra day, some extra time.  How will we use it?
Why has time disappeared in our culture? How is it that after decades of inventions and new technologies devoted to saving time and labor, the result is that there is no time left?
We are a time-poor society; we are temporally impoverished. And there is no issue, no aspect of human life, that exceeds this in importance.
The destruction of time is literally the destruction of life.
Jacob Needleman, American philosopher, born 1934

One thought on “Time rushing by

  1. I guess I didn’t do anything special for this ‘extra’ day; I spent most of the day making a pair of curtains, the last of three pairs for our living room. They are heavy and it makes my back ache but I don’t have much to do on them now, so I think it was time well used 🙂
