Do We Use Time?

Last night Nancy was sewing a rip in a pillow and one in one of our daughter’s pants. And I asked whether this was the best use of her time. That was not an easy question to answer. And isn’t –

Some questions are best unanswered, but should be asked again and again.

I certainly can use up time – watching television shows, doing puzzles, reading trash, surfing the web – going through infinite piles of email – Is any of that the best use of my time? – Of course not,… maybe. Does what I do evoke joy, love, appreciation, positive expectations, gratitude? If it does it may well be the best use of my time.

We don’t know anything about how life works. We know an awful lot about technology. We know so much about things, but interdisciplinary knowing is still rare – we probably miss a lot.

We know a tremendous amount about how, but we know too little about what – What is life? Who are we at the moment of life? At the moment of death? How are we connected? We know we’re all energy, but what does that mean? How does my energy affect yours?

Whenever I think I know any of this the next thing comes along and my not knowing multiplies. That’s why life is constant fun

Hit’s the old tick tock again.
Isn’t it?
Hit pulls me back from wot I’m doin’,
Don’t it now?
And here I thought it were summat good,
Knock on wood

Or knock on wouldn’t, hit’s still
The same old again
Time’s a wastin’ old girl,
Hit’s time to get movin’
Play the game
You can’t call time out
Play the game,
Yer the one wot make it fun.
ya know,
Yer the one
wot makes it fun
