Time is a fickle bitch. She and I are feuding right now. So what else is new.
Conscience: Begin again Jilly. You sound so angry.
J-Dub: Okay. How about this? Time is a construct of man.
Conscience: Better already.
J-Dub: And maybe this? There are only so many hours in the day and trying to get everything done can be overwhelming.
Conscience: Yes for lots of folks. People pack it all in. With as much gusto as can be mustered.
J-Dub: And regrets I have a few.
Conscience: Knock it off. Regrets are wasted time.
J-Dub: Maybe but sometimes I get so tired ya know. Do you?
Conscience: Of course. I am YOU!
“It’s being here now that’s important. There’s no past and there’s no future. Time is a very misleading thing. All there is ever, is the now. We can gain experience from the past, but we can’t relive it; and we can hope for the future, but we don’t know if there is one.” ― George Harrison
J-Dub: I always liked the quiet one of the Beatles. His words ring true. Yes?
Conscience: Ah, that’s the good stuff! More in the spirit of what you intended for this post.
When I initially started writing this post, I had this song blasting.
Anthrax – Got The Time

Might be the cause of the initial anger. Time bomb ticking in my head. Though the rapid fire pace is definitely a common experience. Not because that is how things ARE but because that is how WE make things.
I will say it again: Time is a construct of man.
“Time is a created thing. To say ‘I don’t have time,’ is like saying, ‘I don’t want to.”
― Lao Tzu
Whew! Deep breath. Chilling out. Doing what I want to … on my time. Me and Mr. Hand, we got it going on. Lol! Name that movie cuz you know I had to throw something like that in here.
As always, more to come.
