Bitch on the Blog

As concepts go ‘time’ has it down to a fine second.

When you wait you wait. Ad infinitum.

When you are late you barely get your much needed foot out of the door.

And when you have a nightmare the night drags on.

Time has become a concept lost on me. I will wake in the morning – or the middle of the night – with a start. What day is it? Get your priorities right before even glancing at the clock. Dear sweet dog in heaven. Good job my blood pressure is very low. Even when pressed. Doesn’t stop my heart from pounding.

I am in awe of my heart. The motor. So far it hasn’t given up. Though wouldn’t blame it. There is only so much patience one can muster. I assume that my heart’s reasoning and why it keeps pumping away because it knows if I die it [my heart] will too. Talk about an incentive to keep going.




  1. I love that comment
    ” iam in awe of my heart”

    • I am, John, “in awe of my heart”. My liver too. And my kidneys. The great unknowns and silent types: pancreas and gall bladder. I try not to dwell on any of those organs unstintingly doing the housekeeping hidden out of my sight and control. Instead of which I hang onto my notion that I stem from good stock. Thus relying on good genes. Still. There is a certain uncertainty. Which I try to not let unsettle me.

  2. Time is the biggest joke that creation has given to wo/mankind. No other creature has this problem. Wo/man kind simply cannot accept that time too is ephemeral and just let it be and pass away. How is that for an amateur philosopher?

    • I wouldn’t call time a ‘problem’. More a wonderment to me. I am dumbstruck, Ramana. Dumbstruck. The more time marches on the more dumb and struck by it I am. As a not amusing aside: There is a truly awful website something to do with ‘death clock’ counting you down, second by second, based on the year you were born. Drawn to my attention by GG who does have a somewhat cruel streak.

      And you are right: From what I can tell animals live in the moment. To name but one example of human existence: Animals don’t have to wash their clothes, dry them, iron them, put them away. Or do millions of other things. Plants, animals, are supreme examples of self sufficiency.

      • Come to think of it, Ramana: The difference between human and animal is that animals are not slaves to forward planning.
