Where Does the Time Go?

December 28, 2011

” . . . the morning was almost over.  For Isabel, the watershed was always eleven-thirty; that was the point at which if nothing was achieved, then nothing would be . . . ”
— Alexander McCall Smith, The Forgotten Affairs of Youth

Late morning, time passing

The days seem to pass so much more quickly when I am at home than when I am at work, and more so in winter, when our Seattle days last not quite 8-1/2 hours.  The sun will rise today at 7:57 a.m. and will set at 4:25 p.m.

It sometimes makes me anxious when I see the minutes slipping by and I’m not getting done what I had hoped.  Where does the time go?

    My Nan used to say that for every year you live somone steals a day from it. The years go by quicker as you get older because they’re shorter. I guess they must be taking the day a few minutes at a time from each hour instead of the whole day at the beginning or end of the year. 🙂
