Time wanders on.
When a day turns short, there are moments left.
I had booked an appointment for the evening. The work needing to be done was done — by 8:00. Two hours remained before I would head to bed. I completed a task I had planned on doing tomorrow. That took me til 8:30 or so. I sat with my wife. We watched TV. Now it’s 9:30 and I’m writing.
When you have a task, the time is short. When time is given to us unexpectedly, the moments go slowly. What a conundrum.
Which begs the question — how does one rest? And for how long? And when?
Can you turn unexpected time into rest time? Can those long moments of unexpected time refresh and revitalize?
I think so — if you put your mind to it! (Oops, does that mean I’ve turned rest into another task?)
