Timekeeping!

Posted by Dinky Mind on Monday, August 27, 2012
Try to imagine a life without timekeeping.
You probably can’t. You know the month, the year, the day of the week. There is a clock on your wall or the dashboard of your car. You have a schedule, a calendar, a time for dinner or a movie.
Yet all around you, timekeeping is ignored. Birds are not late. A dog does not check its watch. Deer do not fret over passing birthdays.
Man alone measures time.
Man alone chimes the hour.
And, because of this, man alone suffers a paralyzing fear that no other creature endures.
A fear of time running out.

[The Time Keeper by Mitch Albom]

With great powers, come great responsibilities :P Birds, dogs, deer... have they ever made any great inventions? Haha


The focus had to be on the last sentence, not the entire story :D

Beautiful excerpt though its not just the fear sometimes when You know you can still sleep for 5 more minutes the feeling is pure bliss :)


That's cuz you woke up 5 mins earlier - a tiny fault in your time :p
