Time is a funny concept. It seems that it either moves too fast or moves too slow, even though we know that the seconds tick by at a steady constant rate. When I have a list of chores to do the deadline seems to race toward me. But if I have to wait whether for a doctor's appointment, an important telephone call or a delivery man the hands of the clock barely seem to move. It's at times like these that I try and keep my hands and mind occupied and distract my brain from the slow progression of the clock's hands. My favorite device is to read. I always have a good book around and will loose myself within the pages. On occasion I have even been known to clean the kitchen really well to make time pass (but don't spread that around). I find that working on art projects isn't a good idea because I am distracted and lose creativity. Playing solitaire sometimes will waste a few minutes. Luckily these time gaps happen just enough for me to be glad that I can relax and take a few deep breaths before the next time crunch arrives.
