There never seems to be enough time in the right parts of the day. Of course, the whole point of Quarterly Speed Bump Magazine is to get people (myself included) to slow down and relax rather than feel like every moment of every day should be filled with busyness or business. I just read a four part series on Time on the NPR 13.7 Cosmos and Culture Blog. Great food for thought there. As the author (& astrophysicist), Adam Frank, says in the final part of the time series:
Can you cancel just one appointment next week? How about leaving early enough for an appointment that you have time to hang around and just wait? How about keeping some version of a Sabbath — a day where you don’t buy anything or drive anywhere or accomplish any damn thing? Finally, and most important, how about just slowing down?
I wholeheartedly agree. The entirety of Adam Frank’s blog series on Time can be found at the following links to the Cosmos and Culture blog:
Take the time to read the series and see what you think. You don’t have to agree but it’s great thought fodder. Also, Frank has a new book out that, when I have the time (hahaha), I’ll be checking out.
