Time is....

....too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love, time is eternity." ~Henry Van Dyke

Which brings to mind the quip, "Good things come to those who wait." Umm, which also brings to mind, "All good things must come to an end."

Apparently, this could go on and on, lol.

Who said that, anyway?

Just sitting here sipping absinthe with SGTex and thinking about time....

I'd like to be able to say that I'm posting because I had great, profound thoughts on the matter of *time* and just had to blog, but that's not the case at all. Actually, it was an accident. As usual, I was looking at something else, and just happened across this poem by Mr. Van Dyke, so here we are. :+)

Anyway, have you noticed how it seems like nice things happen when there's plenty of time?

Perhaps it has to do with the attitude with which one anticipates what's about to happen, or with the approach one takes, taking plenty of time and being all laid back and relaxed when engaging in a pleasant activity...Either way, there's something nice about taking one's time.

Like on the weekend. Especially Sundays.

Not to say, one can't squeeze in something wonderful in a big. last minute hurry, just before it's time to start work or leave the house in a mad rush to get somewhere and do something very important.....

And those times are pretty especially nice too, aren't they? Mmmhmm ;+)
