I’m taking a break from this for a little. I’m gonna go outside more.
We kicked the summer off nicely by celebrating my 21st, beaching it and drinking straw-ber-itas. Here’s a little taste of what we did on Memorial Day.
Try to imagine a life without timekeeping.
You probably can’t. You know the month, the year, the day of the week. There is a clock on your wall or the dashboard of your car. You have a schedule, a calendar, a time for dinner or a movie.
Yet all around you, timekeeping is ignored. Birds are not late. A dog does not check his watch. Deer do not fret over passing birthdays.
Man alone measures time.
Man alone chimes the hour.
And, because of this, man alone suffers a paralyzing fear that no other creature endures.
A fear of time running out.
