There's never enough of it: but there are occasions when you have some to spare.
You can have it on your hands: but occasionally you have to kill it.
Often it drags along: but more often it flashes past - especially as you get older.
It's a strange thing.
At least how we perceive it is strange.
I particularly like these two quotations from the Bengali poet and seer, Rabindranath Tagore.
"The butterfly counts not months but moments,
and has time enough."
"Time is a wealth of change,
but the clock in its parody makes it mere change and no wealth."
Some of our Kenyan friends would often say "you have the watches: we have the time."
In the Biblical way of thinking, of course, there are two different kinds of time, chronological time (the kind you can measure with a clock) and 'kairos' time (the "right time" - the opportune moment.)
"There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven" [Ecclesiastes 3]
... but I still think there's not enough of it around!!!
