It seems that most of my deeper thinking these days centers around time, or lack of it as I grow older. This popular song by Peggy Lee questions, Is that all there is as time and events tumble by.
Yes events may seem like an anti-climax and play out as less than you think they should be, but there is time for everything and every experience if you have a little luck. Important above all is to start out right, grit your teeth and gobble up as much education as you can, anyway you can.
I bet even Peggy Lee would have agreed with that.
