Day 1168: Times

I wonder how many times I’ve written about “Time” during the whole time I’ve been writing this daily blog?

The word “Time” has appeared in a Year(s) of Living Non-Judgmentally  title this many times:

Day 82:  The Equal Time Rule

Day 179: Wasting Time

Day 224: Reasons why I shouldn’t spend too much time in our hotel room blogging this morning

Day 289:  Sometimes, it just helps to you know you’re not alone

Day 332: A Once in a Lifetime Day

Day 433: Changes in time

Day 459: Time and Space

Day 460: Time and space continued

Day 552: It’s time to relax

Day 556:  Magic Time

Day 576: No Absolute Time

Day 601: Out of time

Day 673:  Let’s Move/Time of the Season

Day 684: Down time

Day 688: Multiple times

Day 712: TIME

Day 804: Timeless

Day 863: I haven’t got time for …

Day 939: Time Machines

Day 964: Who has the time?

Day 983: What I Haven’t Got Time For

Day 993: Equal Time

Day 998: Last Time

Day 1048: Time Stops

Day 1130: Time

Day 1149: Hope and Love in Times Square

Personally, I’m glad I took the time to find all those previous posts about time.

If you had time to read another one of my blog posts today, which of those posts would you choose?  I hope you have time to answer that question and to let me know why you made that choice. If you don’t have the time to do that, I understand.

I shall now take the time to tell you which of those posts I would re-read, if I had the time:

  1. Day 443: Changes in time, because I assume it’s about changing the clocks by an hour (as we did again last night) and
  2. Day 576: No Absolute Time, because I assume it includes a great tune by Jean-Luc Ponty.

However, because so much time has passed since I wrote those two posts, I’m not sure if my assumptions (times 2) are true.

I’m not going to take the time to read  any old posts of mine this morning, because I need to take some time to pick up and move three pieces of furniture for my new office at various times through the day.  And because I need to rely on the kindness and time of others, I need to figure out some tricky time challenges, to make this all work.  Plus, I want to leave some time for myself just to relax. I mean, isn’t that the way one should spend time, over a weekend, before it’s time to go back to work?

Now, I’m going to take the time to see if there are any new photos about time biding their time on my iPhone.

Here are the photos I took time to take yesterday when I was spending time with my downstairs neighbor Karen, my son Aaron, and/or my boyfriend Michael — all time well spent:


I shall now take the time to tell you that this …


.. is entirely made of candy (except for the wood), according to my neighbor Karen.

Here‘s another song about time from a long time past, performed by a local group from Boston:

Unlike Orpheus, I CAN find the time to tell you this:

  1. Several times while I’ve been writing this post, my son’s alarm has gone off, because he’s taking the time to help me move furniture this morning and
  2. If my long-time friend Janet is reading this post, I’m assuming she might take the time to tell me that the band Orpheus is actually from her home town of Worcester,  Massachusetts, not Boston.

Like 1167-or-so previous times, it’s time for me to thank all those who helped me create this post and also you — of course! — for taking the time to visit, here and now.

  1. I choose to read “Day 576: No Absolute Time” as I also am very interested in time. I also have been thinking about “time” although not much as I was younger. Time is strange and I am still could not get anything out of it. You are right according to the modern science that there is no “absolute time”. Scott Kelly is 1/100 second younger if he would be on earth here 🙂

  2. Ann, I hope you find lots of time for everything today, especially for relaxing.

    I am going to follown your link to post 82: The Equal Time Rule because I love reading posts from the earliest days of your blog..Some of them were written before I became a regular reader and I enjoy catching up and seeing the changes.

    • I always appreciate the time you spend here, Maureen. I got no time for relaxing today but it was still all time well spent.

  3. I thought you would enjoy this short vid about the time change Ann. ❤

  4. Hi Ann! Taking the time to tell you I had NO IDEA Orpheus was from Worcester! Add them to Abbie Hoffman, the pill, and the smiley face as things born/invented/created in my hometown we can credit (or blame) for the 60s. Thanks for taking time to point that out, proving you learn new things all the time.

  5. “Time is on my side”…Rolling Stones. I love the time change. No matter the “lost sleep”… I’ve lost sleep for much worse reasons. Have a great time today, Ann. ☺

  6. I’d like to find the time to read every one of your posts, but I don’t think I’ll be able to. I will, however, have enough time to go back and read #556, “Magic Time”, because there does seem to be something magical about time. The poet Brenda Hillman paraphrases Stephen Hawking and says that time may have come into existence when space tried and failed to give birth to itself.
    She also says,

    My girl came to the study

    and said Help me;

    I told her I had a time problem

    which meant:

    I would die for you but I don’t have ten minutes.

    I’ll end this comment now so it doesn’t take up any more of your time.

  7. I like all your ‘times’ post Ann!

  8. Carol Ferenc

    “Time is the fire in which we burn” : Jean Luc Picard, Star Trek. If I keep that in mind, I’ll accomplish more, but not before I take time to relax tonight. Wishing you time to relax too, Ann.

    • I’m going to relax in a few minutes, Carol. Thanks for taking the time to bring yourself and Captain Picard to my blog today.

  9. The time has come for me to think about stuff, what stuff I do not know only time will tell what I will think of but I don’t have the time to tell you what those thoughts will be because it is nearly time for me to go get the washing off the line, time seems to get away from me most days

  10. We had a discussion this morning about Daylight Saving Time. I always thought you couldn’t turn back time, but you can in fall. Given that we think there are 24 hours difference between one side of America and the other, does every state spring forward on the same day?

    • I can’t tell you how many times we’ve discussed these time changes, Derrick. America is many times smaller than you think it is — there’s only three hours difference between one side and the other, so yes, we all change time on the same day.

  11. Time is something we all think we have, but like sand in a sieve, it’s gone before you know it. Great post!
