Time Enough At Last
My boys are fascinated by time.
Derek James

Chase, my 8-year-old, is especially enamored with calendars and dates. He can tell you everyone’s birthday, he remembers when various things happened, and he loves to count down to special days and events. As we begin in 2020, I’ve realized that time moves quickly. It’s also dawned on me where my boys’ interest in time comes from; namely, dear old Dad.

I enjoy flipping the calendar to a new month. I also enjoy crossing days off the calendar as they go by. I don’t have anything in particular that I’m counting down to, really. I’m not sure why I enjoy these things. Am I, perhaps, too focused on what’s next rather than enjoying what’s now? Is it time (no pun intended) for me to just settle in more and enjoy the ride?
