It’s Wednesday if you count from the beginning of the work week, or Thursday – if you count down from the last working day of the week. Well so it is for some of us. For others, shops, restaurants etc., it’s definitely just Wednesday.
Our sense of date and time is (for most people) not constant. If you are dreading something, the time rushes on until the moment arrives. Yet if you are eagerly anticipating something, the time just drags, making it feel as though the moment will never come.
If you are under pressure for a deadline, time rushes on, threatening your success. If there is little to do, time lingers around,
So I wonder is time really a specific thing that can always be measured the same way. Maybe some days actually only have 20 hours while others have 29. Maybe some minutes have 400 seconds and others 3 seconds.
Aha! I hear you cry, but then how does one day have 20 hours for you and 32 for me? I’m still not sure about that
aspect of my theory. I suspect it may have to do with time bending the rays of the sun, and the reflections from the moon. It can be very specific,
honing in on one person, or embracing whole areas.
At least this is my theory, and I’m sticking to it. (For today at least – for however long today actually is)
