The Right Time


Chronos

Tick—6 am alarm

Tock—56-minute commute

Tick—2 pm staff meeting

Tock—40-year career

Shove feet into shoes without untying. Run.


Kairos

The hint of sunlight at the horizon.

Trees blossoming on the roadside.

The value of working together.

A life that matters.

Savor. Notice. Retie shoes for a comfortable fit. Walk. Wander. Wonder.


Chronos

Tick—calendarize

Tock—prioritize

Tick—Work through lunch.

Tock—“You can have 5 minutes.”

Chase happiness.


Kairos

Look forward to the day.

Cherish. Discern.

Nourish. Breathe.

“I’m listening.”

Find joy.


Chronos

The big hand is on 12, the little on 5.

Tell time.


Kairos

The first kiss. Belly laughs. Grand adventures. The last goodbye.

Live time.

Learning to Blog at Fartingduck Acres

Quite frankly, or quack frightly, this has been a fun day. This is the content of the blog I am writing at Lenore's instruction; and it's fascinating, if I must say so myself. I'm quite finished.
