Dateline Wuxi, China Monday March 25, 2013
612 on the elliptical in 31 minutes again this morning. Our machine is wearing out. It’s no longer smooth, but turns in jerks that are really distracting.
I’ve been thinking on the subjectivity of time. The first five minutes seem to go by very quickly. Then it takes forever to get to the half way point, fifteen minutes, which figures because that’s twice as long. Then forever again to get down to the five minute mark. But the last five minutes go really quickly. I’m wondering if this is the same for our lives. Our early childhood goes by very quickly. Then it takes forever before we wake up and realize we’re turning 40. Then another long run to 60. And the last goes by in a flash. Oh no. Dark thoughts.
