Time and Tide

Daily Prompt: Obstacle Course
Think about you wanted to accomplish last week. Did you? What are the things that hold you back from doing everything you’d like to do?


Last week, I wanted to read Zealot. I wanted to see what it’s all about. I had to finish another book, “The White Princess” before reading Zealot. My inbox is overflowing with blogs I follow. I have to find time to read them. Last week was filled with invitations to lunches. I hate to sit inactive for hours. It makes me tired and I wonder at my own stupidity in going. The young generation has the stamina to lounge for hours and chat. If I was on my own I think two hours are sufficient to spend at such gatherings. What I have to do is sit and wait for my dear ones for hours to finish their gabbing. Who am I and to whom can I complain?

Last week, I was watching all episodes of “The Lying Game”. I managed to see all the Season 1 and Season 2 episodes. That took a lot of my time and I was unable to read Zealot as I had to return it. Many people are on a waiting list at the library. I have two options now – either to buy it or put again my name on the waiting list to have another go at it.

My barrier is time. It passes quickly for me and I don’t know where it goes. I open my eyes and it is a new morn and too soon it’s evening turning daylight into a twilight zone.

It’s funny when you want the time to pass quickly, it won’t and when you want it slow, it won’t.
