It seems that these days everyone is always against some sort of clock. There’s so much rushing about and panicking, we don’t ever just stop and take it in, we miss so much that is going on around us, and our lives have become whirlwinds that disappear as quickly as they arrived. There are deadlines at work, minutes at meetings, school runs, after school activities, tea-time, timetables, clock watching. It’s such a rat race, there’s so much competitiveness all around, in the workplace, in school, even with your next door neighbour, the whole ‘keeping up with the Jones’ has taken a turn for the worse. We’re obsessed with time and how much we have of it or at least how little we have, someone is always running late or worrying that they might be running late, checking their watch, worrying about their biological clock ticking. It’s all about time and how we don’t have enough, not enough hours in the day, its true though, we don’t have much time, in the grand scheme of things a lifetime is gone in the blink of an eye, so we should seize the day, take our time to just have one more minute to watch that sunset, read a few more pages of your book, one last quick kiss before work because in the end we are all just against the clock.
