Time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time.
― Marthe Troly-Curtin
It’s Sunday as I type, and eight inches of expected snow is falling to the ground. White and fluffy and accumulative. Meanwhile, a marathon of NCIS Los Angeles is playing on the TV and Gibbs the cat can’t make up his mind if he’s needy, hungry or needy.
It is all I can do to not “waste time” on the couch. Lay sideways. Nap. Watch TV. It’s that kind of day.
Not quite 2:00 pm and I wonder why I’m not in my pajamas.
Ziva cat understands that wasting time is a valuable resource. It’s been her goal for many years to reflect the enjoyment of sleep and laying around all day, doing nothing. She is not lazy, but rather continuing her research into the positive mental health effects of this important activity.
They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.
― Andy Warhol
True and False.
True: I changed my life a little over ten years ago by making an important decision that I will never regret.
False: The passing of time can make us realize that we are in charge of our life and happiness. It’s only then that change comes with actions and desire for a different future.
Time flies like an arrow; fruit flies like a banana.
― Anthony G. Oettinger
Where does the time go? Some days it feels faster than the time it takes for a banana to turn black and the fruit flies to gather.
It seems unreal that I am 62 years old. I’ve grown from a baby to an adult, attended school, been married and divorced, took care of and said goodbye to two parents, worked since age 16, learned how to drive cars and motorcycles, found great friends, and headed down a road to retirement. I remember clearly, around age 14, with the Sears catalog in hand, lusting after a pair of groovy purple bell bottoms. It was the early 70’s. Forty-eight years have passed since then and it makes me wonder how much time I’ve spent as an adult, shopping for clothes and shoes and things I didn’t really need.
I don’t think I want to know.
If time flies like this, should I be wasting it on the couch?
And wasting time doing nothing?
I’m headed over there now, to the couch, joining Ziva in her research.
I’ll provide answers when the official report is released.
