Such a weighty topic! Yesterday I read a sentence that praised the value of our awareness of the passage of time. It struck me as being very odd. The statement had been written centuries ago. Can it be that it’s a blessing to be aware of the passage of time? Contemplating it from the Boardwalk, I do agree, for during every moment of our lives we march toward a better understanding and loving of ourselves and of others and if we can be aware of this, so much the better.
