It confirmed without a doubt that they are indeed gorgeous (I am not biased).
The little rascals live 755km (470mi) away in rural South Australia, which means that I don't get to hang out with them as much as I'd like. Whenever I see photos of them, I'm always a little stunned - it's like time just did a massive leapfrog.
What have I missed in between?
It saddens me to think of it.
This leapfrog phenomena contrasts to how I experience life that immediately surrounds me. Days seem to merge into another and before I know it weeks, months, years and decades fleet past (a bit like little droplets of water filling up a bucket, sink, bath, swimming pool).
So today I started thinking about time.
Time would have to be the most precious resource (besides food, water and shelter). Each second is a premier, a debut never to be repeated. We cannot buy it or save it - but we sure do spend it. Do we spend time frivolously or invest it wisely - or perhaps a bit of both?
This is what I am pondering right now.
How do you spend your time? Do you consider it a wise investment?
Until tomorrow, may the tick-tock of the clock remind you of life's other precious things.
