Delayed Ambition / Procastination

8 Elul, 5778
ח׳ בֶּאֱלוּל תשע״ח

unnamedThe first day of the week dawns at 6:57AM on the tick-tock machine this week, but it always rises at 6:00 AM on the sundial. And shortly after that, I arise. Usually for the second time. My mind wishes to wake before dawn, but my body ain’t having none of that.

And we are into the eight day of the month of Elul, a time of introspection. But then, I live in introspection, so the observance doesn’t change my routine much. All of this leads up to a reflection of a larger truth. The time comes, however, when we grow weary of the reflection, and wish to see truth, even if that knowledge is damaging.

Doctors and blood draws are in the week ahead, along with a growing list of uncompleted chores. So we sip coffee, munch on a soft cookie, and wait for ambition to arrive.

Good morning!

    Tick-tock machines, I like that 🙂 If all the tick tock machines all over the world were to suddenly stop, would time stop also? 😉 Have a beautiful week Sir!

      I have it on normally reliable sources that the tick-tockers will all melt up in fervent heat. 😉

        I’ve read that same reliable source so I trust that is exactly what will happen, then no more time 🙂

    When I retired, I put away my watch forever. An appointment book reminds me of various places I need to be, and the clock in the bottom right hand corner of the computer screen tells me the day and time. Happy Sunday!

      I did quit wearing a watch, and now I have sundial time on my computer! Unfortunately, my doctors make appointments by the ticktocker, so it is either submit, or wait in the waiting room …
