day 156: time
Time is a curious thing. Sometimes it flies and sometimes it seems to stand still, depending on what you’re willing it to do. That doesn’t mean that we can control how we perceive time, no, it only means that it usually does the opposite of what we want. If we want time to pass quickly, we are bored and it seems even longer. And if we want to hold on to a moment the more the moment just slips through our fingers. It mocks us. And that’s why we always attempt to control it anyway: Just because we can’t.
