Timely Thoughts

Our area was blessed with a half-inch of holy water yesterday.  It was a slow rain with thunder.  This morning the earth looks refreshed and a titch greener.

Sunday mornings bring us the Sunday Paper, which is more substantial than the daily, and its crossword puzzle is larger and more difficult.  Usually I cheat and look up the answers to some of the clues, especially those that pertain to movies and actors.  We seniors are scared to death of losing our cookies, so we puzzle.  We stimulate and energize our brains best we can, doing the things we enjoy doing.

Rules relax on Sunday.  Idleness is permitted.  In our house, snack foods are another Sunday permission and also the perfect definition of the double-edged sword.

Imagine life if days were not mapped out as Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.  Take that a step farther and imagine if there was no such thing as a clock.  Imagine the chaos without calendars and clocks.

Time is all we have.  It has complete control of us.

"The whole life of man is but a point of time.
Let us enjoy it."
~Plutarch (46 AD - 120 AD)
