I pulled a Milford and stayed in bed way too late this morning. Well, for this Modern Philosopher at least, being in bed after 10AM is extremely late.
I woke up at my normal time, but my head and stomach weren’t feeling right, so I crawled back under the covers. Cali must have sensed that her Daddy was sick, because she curled up next to me and turned on her adorable purring system.
I’ve made it down to the couch, but I’m still in my pajamas, and I’m wearing my Magic Robe. If you’ve followed this blog long enough, you know that if I’ve put on the Magic Robe, I am in desperate need of its healing powers.
Needless to say, my brain definitely needs a jump start on this last Saturday of 2014. The rest of my body needs a jump start as well, but I don’t have a regular weekly feature that covers that. So, I guess I’m screwed.
Anyone else need a jump start? I’ve got 1000 volts of Deep Thoughts here to get your gray matter humming again…
Is it really the final weekend of 2014? The year is about to end? Seriously? My next Jump Start post is going to take place in 2015? Where did the time go?
Did 2014 seem to pass quickly? Is it possible that time slows down at certain points, but then completely speeds up at others? I remember last Winter being so long and seemingly never ending, so why does it feel like this year went by at the blink of an eye?
Does time seem to pass at a different rate depending on your age? Is the passage of time relative to your level of happiness? Does it drag when you’re sad and depressed or trapped at work, and then speed up when you are happy, in love, and enjoying yourself?
Does the fact that I’m asking where the time went mean that I’ve become old and irrelevant? Does one only ask about where the time went when one is pondering his own mortality?
Could I be asking all these deep philosophical questions because I’m not feeling well? Does my brain go into a heightened sense of awareness when it senses that germs have made it into the bloodstream and are threatening to take control of my body?
Or am I just asking these questions because it’s been another rough Holiday Season? Am I sensing a disturbance in The Force because I know a certain someone is close by and has made no effort to reach out to me? Is my sense of time thrown off by the confusion in my heart? Do I simply lose track of time because I’ve been so distracted?
How quickly do you think 2015 will pass, Modern Philosophers? Will the year treat us well? Will we remember it as the year that time stood still?
So many Deep Thoughts to ponder, Modern Philosophers. I’m going back to bed…
