I wanted to tell you that I’ve been thinking about time, which is true, but I find that I don’t even know where to start because it’s just so… big. I’m thinking time because there are some things that I feel like are missing in my life, but temporally my life feels very full as is (and it’s arguably less full than it was two or three years ago, which is partly an indication of how my relationship to time has changed). I’m thinking about time because in my day job I find myself struggling to stop working while simultaneously feeling like I never actually get around to working on the stuff that matters. I’m thinking about time because there is a big change that I’m considering making, but I have no sense of when or for how long I would make it (and you know I hate that unresolved sensation of waiting for something to become clear).
For more cohesive thoughts on time, see Anne Helen Petersen’s The Diminishing Returns of Calendar Culture.
P.S. if you’ve read Olivie Blake’s books and would like to talk about her obvious obsession with the nature of time and time travel, @ me (by which I mean, hit reply to this email)
