On Wasting Time + 2 July Images
It is hard to believe that this is already the 7th month of this year. I can hardly come to terms with the fact that not long ago I was admiring the first spring blooms and now the bushes are full of nearly ripe gooseberries! It seems that I must get my jars ready… (oh, that obsession to preserve!)
The whole rhythm of life, dictated by the laws of nature, is not such a bad thing – I do enjoy picking berries in the summer and raking leaves in the autumn, yet very often I wish it would be possible to freeze happy moments, to stop everything and to simply fit everything in! (This blog might have been neglected for some time, but soon you will get the full account of stories I have to share.)
At the moment I hope that at the end of this summer I will be able to say that I remember loads of early mornings, when I managed to get up with the Sun, loads of sunny days, when I was pleased I could hide in the shade of a big tree, loads of interesting trips and new places, where anything could inspire or push towards fulfilling old dreams. I guess it’s just my fear of wasting this beautiful time of the year…
I will leave you to keep enjoying summer with Alice Bloch’s (professor of sociology) thoughts on time and two images for your this month’s desktop.
“We say we waste time, but that is impossible. We waste ourselves.”
