IF I CAN SOMEHOW FIND THE TIME ’ “By Cecil Lawson d 'b ' , k d th tim b b d ' ' . tars ale 1,1115%;ng axial. wél‘rhngtvgecond hand on the gasgign an S an e U L D U B E I N D wondered how I was going Or when we are “killing time,” we are waiting until something better comes along. In other words, time has something to do with activ- ity, or movement It’s how watch still keeps ticking us. A second is always still a second, but our feelings of- ten cause our minds to lose sight of that. Our ancestors did not have clocks, but they too Mechanical clocks have to find the time to get every- along- . been With US since the thing done, A second is a second, no Middle Ages and were first “Find the time,” matter what we are doing. used by Christian monks to How does a person actu- ally “find” time? I looked at my watch as the second hand relentless- ly ticked on. Was I going to “find” the time by looking at a clock or watch? That seemed like a waste of time. “Wasting” time — there it was again. And the same thing is true when it comes to the idea of “saving” time — if you . save it, where exactly do you keep it? We do all. sorts of things when it comes to time.— “making” the time, “kllh ing” time, making it just “in time,” running “out” of time, taking a “time out.” Time, it Seems, is a word we use in the English lan- guage to cover a wide vari- ety of experiences, without ever actually recognizing what time itself is. When we say We are going to “find the time,” we usual- ly mean that we will have to stop doing something so we can do something else. When we say we are “sav- ing time,” we mean we are finding an a more efficient way of doing something. I When we say we are “tak- ing our time,” we mean we are doing: something more slowly. I And seconds add up to min- utes, minuteS into hours, and hours'into days, days into years, and years into . This “time” is a peculiar thing, however. If we say we’d like to “go back” in time or “jump ahead” and see the future, we know we have left the real world and entered the world of science fiction. We are always in the here and now, except when we remember (which still takes place in the now), or ‘ when we anticipate (which also takes place in the now). 'No matter how much we plan ahead or worry about happened‘yesterday or what might happen tomorrow, we are still in the “now.” And by the measures of our clocks and watches, a second is still always a second — it won’t arrive any faster or slower. Our feelings and experi- ence always color our expe- rience of time - we’re bored when we have to wait for something and there’s noth- ing to occupy our minds; we’re anxious when we are afraid of what might hap pen, and the passage of time feels like a torture; and we “lose track of time” when we are occupied and absorbed I . in something that interests divide up their days into the various offices of religious observance within their monasteries — times to pray, work, and sleep; Watches and “standard time” are fairly recent his- torical inventions and have helped to get the entire world synchronized in the. past few centuries. No matter how much today we rush and scram- ble to get things done, to squeeze as much out of the day (or the hour) as we can, a second isstill a second, we are always still in the here and now, and our minds color the sense of how time moves along. Some say we are now “chained to the clock,” but. really, we are mostly just un- ' der the delusion that we can somehow always get more things done in the same amount of time. Measuring time seems to feed this delusion. We won’t break the spell by taking a harmner to our watches and clocks, but rather by giv- ing up the mistaken belief that more and more always needs to be done. Maybe then we can “find” the time that so cunnineg seems to elude our search. . 99 «EMAIL: $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ YOU.OROTHER PEOPLE?
