Time and Space


Time & Space.jpg

The clock, tick tock
Time keeps on ticking
A commitment here
Penciled in
Scheduled in my agenda
A slave I am
To time and space
The expectations of the human race
Show up
Fulfill the slot
Give face
Speak your case
Then hope for acceptance
Because in the end…
…You were on time

Do you ever feel like you are fighting with the clock? Too many commitments? Imagine what it would be like in the absence of time and space.  Can you?

    1. Tell me about it. It’s like an enemy. It’s a daily struggle for me. And even worse when in Canada where it’s so important to be on time.

  1. Thank you for reminding me to keep trying to set priorities–a challenge. How terrific it does feel, though, to arrive some place on time and without having raced to get there. Peace…..

    1. Oh Chloe, I’m still waiting for the day when I’m not rushing to get somewhere on time. It’s a constant struggle. I swear I have ADHD, and I’m not just joking. Even though I may try to set my priorities, I never seem to let go of that which can wait until later. It’s like I have a list of all I need to do, and it all needs to be done now.

  2. Yes, its frequently on my mind. It seems the busier we are, the quicker time passes by. Have you ever looked at your children and wondered where the time went?

    1. OMG, I have noticed that too. I remember when I was a child. Time seemed to pass so slowly. Now I just need to blink and another year has passed.
      I’m with my kids a lot, but I do think that, if we don’t savour and take in the precious moments we have with them we lose out in life, don’t you think?

      1. I agree. I wouldn’t trade it for the world. BTW, I’m happy that you found the “making of” video. I’m sure that helped explain about the men in half! 🙂

      1. I felt there was no rush or no passing of time as I sat in the square at night in Rome. Sitting, drinking wine and just hanging out. No rush. Nowhere to go. I have wonderful memories and they will always be very special to me 😉

      2. Ohhhhh, I’m so jealous. I would absolutely love to go to Italy. I lived in Buenos Aires for 3 months which is like a South American Italy in a sense. I looooooovvvve their gelato.

      3. Mine was swiss cocolate with dulce de leite. OMG, my mom’s coming to visit next yr and we’re going to spend a few days there. I am so going to need to diet aftwrwards. 🙂

  3. After 50 years of getting up at dark o’clock, any other obligations, whether personal or financial can piss off unless I choose otherwise. I made my contribution at the office.

    1. Hahaha. Yea, dark o’clock is the worse. I remember those days. Brazil stays pretty well the same all year. Dark by 7:00 and light by 5/6:00.

    1. Rob, you are so kind. And I am truly honored. But like you said, it’s the too busy thing. Time, oftentimes is my worst enemy. I’m actually thinking of making my blog award free because there are still a number of them that I haven’t attended too yet, and don’t know when I’ll get the time to do so.
      Congratulations on your award. You’re the best.

      1. Thank you, Staci! Sometimes I feel like a blogging evangelist, wanting to spread the news of the wonderful bloggers that I’ve discovered. 🙂

      2. Of course not! :-). Now, if you tell me my music is awful, that’s a different story.

  4. This reminds me of your latest post. In truth, there have been times when I tried to meet up, but I didn’t feel bad when it wasn’t possible.

    A period without time? To me that will be eternity. I may be wrong. And yes, I’ve had this thought about a timeless space. My! That means a new chapter. A new world!

    1. Yes, it seems so difficult to imagine a ‘time’ without time. I believe in eternity as well, but my logical, pea sized brain can’t really seem to totally grasp it. I guess we’ll only be able to fully grasp that concept when we arrive there.
      Thank you Uzoma for your insight on this.

  5. Oh how I wish there was no such thing as time! The writing I could do without the constraints of clock-watching. Working full time and trying to carve a writing career in the little spare time that I have is such hard work. Even if there were twelve more hours in each day, I still think I’d end up chasing my tail!

    1. I feel 100 % the same way Heather. Even 12 more hours in a day seems like too little for all that I would like to do, read, study, write, etc. We’ll be chasing our tails together, my friend.

      1. Honestly, if I didn’t need to sleep/eat/pee or work for a living then I’d probably get a hell of a lot more stuff done than I actually do!

        It does surprise me at times how much I manage to get through in a day, but there is always more out there to be done. At least I know I’m not the only one chasing my tail…. 🙂

  6. Ah now I remember who you are! I came here through a link yesterday, enjoyed your site but had no time to linger (some appointments must be kept)
    .I applaud your work for Jesus (I read the YWAM post) also. I found Jesus when I was young (or rather He came and rescued me) and He’s been my companion ever since keeping me in my wild adventures and bringing at the beauty in life. May He bless and keep you always.

    1. Wonderful. That is great news. So then were sisters.
      Thank you for you kind words and for sharing your experience.
      May God bless you richly too Claire.
