Running late

This post is running a little late and doing so prompts me to think a bit about the concept of time. I am the kind of person who likes to be on time. I like things to run according to schedule wherever possible. And therefore, I am bound to be disappointed occasionally...

The reality of human existence is much messier than the always predictable passing of time. Ours is a culture that can be obsessed with time, however this is not a universal condition. Living for a while without constantly referring to watches or clocks can be quite liberating for those who feel compelled to adhere to a schedule or make every moment productive. At least that's what people keep trying to tell me.
