Do we have time for time off, time away, time to rhyme?
Whether you had and easy weekend, or difficulty, time away from our norms helps, I think, to focus us more clearly on what matters more, and on what matters less. That way we get clearer, more or less.
What we need and want takes time – time in terms of patience, time in terms of attention, time in terms of doing the time. For every bad act, for every untoward thought, for every slight and imperfection – we have to live with that, we have to do the time. For every good act, for every kind thought, for every kind work or act, every praise of virtue – we have to live with that, we have to do the time.
