I just read on facebook that a fellow resident in my town could not watch television because her aerial was broken. She was assisted by a neighbour and you could tell that she was breathing a sigh of relief in her post as she said,” I don’t know what I would have done without my TV, it helps to pass the time.”
PASS THE TIME???!!! What could she be thinking – was she thinking at all?
Let’s USE our time. Let’s suck everything good out of our time! Let’s make up things to do if no one is there to entertain us. Let’s be sorry when we have to sit down to eat supper like we used to when we were kids. Let’s regret that it is getting dark and we have to stop playing. Let’s relish each and every minute and organize our days and nights so we can use those minutes to see, hear and taste the world around us.
Let’s not think too long or hard about what is missing in our day. Let’s not worry so much about what is not that could have been. Let’s not philosophize our lives into obscurity. Let’s just live!
Make the time pass???? Let’s make the time count!!!!
