September has been and gone...

I had a wild time. No. Well, I had a time.

Time is my most precious resource. I say it again and again, but it's what I'd like most for Christmas, Birthday or any time when someone offers me a gift. I'd like time.


I want a day that has at least 2 extra hours in it. An eight day week, and a year with two Decembers.
I want a time-turner that works for revisiting moments I've loved, and a pause button for times I'm enjoying so much and don't want to end.
I want a way to stop ageing so that everybody I love can stay at their favourite age for a long time. I want to be able to turn around and see the generations before, and talk to them so that they can tell me that time is irresistible, and the only thing to do it go with it.
Time is a flood, time is a great tidal surge that is washing me away. Time is the great leveller, the great destroyer, the ultimate barrier to immortality.




What I really need is to grasp hold of my time and to use it well. What I need is to embrace time and see it as a source of wisdom, a place of hope, the end of all my desires.

What I need is to simply, utterly, inevitably, just be.

  1. It would certainly be good to have a few extra hours in the day, wouldn't it? There's so many things I want to do but so little time to fit it all in.
