Well, here we are, people. New Year’s Day is staring us down. And, as always, it assumes its role as the demarcation point between what was and what will be. That’s all well and good, I suppose. But if you ask me, it’s really about time…
As you approach New Year’s Day, I encourage you not to get hung-up on resolutions, deadlines – points of beginning and ending.
First and foremost, I want to send along my very best wishes for a good as possible 2018. I’d also like to thank you for your visits and participation this year. And it’s my hope you’ll stick with Chipur throughout the year coming.
‘Course, it’s up to me to entice you to come back, by providing quality content.
As I’ve gotten older, the concept of time has become vitally important. The reality of having perhaps a score of years left on the planet certainly has much to do with that.
However, it’s finally dawned on me that quantity isn’t everything. There is the matter of quality – of life.
So, sure, one ultimately finds creative ways of managing things to which reality assigns scarcity.
About a month ago I posted an article about our time-warped minds, featuring the concept of the unconscious. In that piece I included this from Albert Einstein…
The distinction between past, present, and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion.
Within the context of my time-sensitive mind, I found Einstein’s words comforting. Huge, actually. For me, it was about time as a flowing phenomenon without demarcations.
Time is, well, time.
So as you approach New Year’s Day, I encourage you not to get hung-up on resolutions, deadlines – points of beginning and ending.
Instead, just live – doing your very best within the flow of time, something over which you have no control.
Wishing you a Happy New Year and thanking you for being a Chipur reader. Let’s continue the friendship.
By the way, if you find yourself with some idle “time,” why not peruse some Chipur titles and find an article that’s just right for you?
