Time For Joy
"Time you enjoyed wasting is not wasted time." T. S. Eliot
All of our endeavors do not seem equal.
Time spent working on the problems that plague the world does not seem equal to time spent on entertainment.
But most of our endeavors do have merit - we just need to balance them.
Take the ways we spend our time preparing for and enjoying the holidays. Some call these weeks "the silly season."
Some of it may be truly silly and we can overdo it but this time strengthens our bond with others and recharges us for the coming year.
Today I will enjoy the spirit of the season.
