I find that I am always on a schedule. When I say that I mean that every second is accounted for between family, work and whatever else is on the schedule. Then when I plan time to do nothing or relax, I always feel like I am unable to sit still. I actually dread the thought of going to a place to sit (like a beach or anywhere that you are supposed to chill). Not so sure what that means but if I am awake, then I am working on something.
I have been trying to explain that to my high school students and it is as if I am speaking another language. “What do you mean Mr. Pizem that you don’t have time to see a concert or go to a movie?” I slowly and clearly explain what my weekly schedule looks like and they quickly understand that “there is no time”.
As the days pass and I continue to feel short on time, I guess that I will wonder what it’s like to have time.
I felt tired and out of time this past Friday when Ken said that we were going to shoot some climbing photos. Thanks for this nice one. Ken Redding photo.
