Time. It’s a tab bit tricky to conceptualize. Human beings have been utterly curious, baffled, confused, encouraged, and a myriad of other action verbs into trying to understand it for centuries, but it’s just something we cannot fully grasp. It's a subject matter that provokes insight into some of the most audible questions people have been asking. What is time? Why can't we control it? What if we want it to stop? What if we need more time? Is that possible? Mitch Albom has created a fictional fable around these thoughts, and I personally thought he did a good job. Not extraordinarily good, but satisfying enough. He was going somewhere…it may have been to a place where the average person could think about “time” similar to how they can say the A, B, C’s, you know, with ease and finesse. Take a peek. You’ll find that there are moments in the book where you just have to take a step back and think about the last sentence and apply it to your life. THIS IS NOT A TIME WASTER!
