Manic Monday #158

march 9 2009

What would you do with an extra hour each day?

Well, I probably would do the same what I do all day, but if this hour was a secret between Time and me, and was not to be spend on others, I would try to relax.
Now spring is coming, the idea of taking my time gardening and listening to the birds is very appealing.
When the hour would be extra at midday I certainly would spend part of it practicing bagpipes.

Do you wear a watch? If so, tell us about it. If not, how do you keep track of time?

I love clocks, so there are clocks all over the house.
I never wear a watch inside the house.
Since my wristwatch stopped forever keeping track of time, I take a pocketwatch with me.
It's a 1 dollar thingy from that huge shoppingsite online, but I hope to have a real pocketwatch, one with a history.

Time is just something I don't like, unless it's caught in a beautiful or extravagant watch.
Because I like to be in time when I'm having a meeting or an appointment, and it's always a problem to get somewhere, I leave home in time and then accept dependence on public transport. Not having a wristwatch is very relaxing.

If it was possible, would you want to know how many days you had left to live?

Oh yes, I can deal with that.

I now life like there's a tomorrow forever, whereas I'm high risk for heart failure.
instead of being prepared, I keep many things on my to-do list. Like that keeps problems away.
Now I think about it, it's kind of magic thinking. Death won't come when my house is still not completely perfect.

Knowing how long I have to live makes me able to prepare things, and do the things I wanted to do in life.
All my life now goes to the children, like my life isn't my own.

One by one I have to give up my dreams, because I'm getting too old.
That's dying a bit each time.

When I know how many days I still have, I would say a proper goodbye to all I love and leave to have some silence and contact with nature.
I've always said I wanted to walk into the dessert to die, but the last time I think I'd rather would be in the mountains, close to another, living, kind of nature.

  4. Let me put it this way:
    Q> What would you do with an extra hour each day?
    A> Devote time to my Internenet site. Sometimes I need one more hour to sleep.
    Q> Do you wear a watch? If so, tell us about it. If not, how do you keep track of time?
    A> No, I do not, but I would like to. I don't wear it since I have got a cellphone, which shows time, date and has an organizer.
    Q> If it was possible, would you want to know how many days you had left to live?
    A> Yes.
