Time is all you really have in life. Anything else is a possession ~ precious, useless, tolerated, beloved or not.Time is all those things as well. Time can only be wasted in the moment of choice or imposed through accepted & enabled thoughtlessness of others. Even the accepted & enabled is a choice.
This one way only river. Tides may ebb and flow to the universes rhythms. While time marches steadily on, around the clock, around the globe.
I look back with despondent despair at wasted time. Grieving grief at what will never be again. Perhaps forgotten or sullenly remembered. Technology is only a tool, not an obedient obsession.
Be in this moment, it’s the only one that is truly yours.
