That elusive quality of nature

“Time is that elusive quality of nature which keeps events from happening all at once. Lately, it doesn’t seem to be working.” –Douglas Adams

I learned that quote my freshman year of college in Chris Blake’s Honors Composition class. Part of his genius pedagogy was to have us memorize important phrases, famous quotes, and Bible verses for exams. Some, like this one, have stuck in my brain for 15 years. And as I looked through my May calendar today, I couldn’t help but think that time is not doing it’s job lately. 

So. Many. Things.

One can dream, right?
