Interesting post, I have also thought that time has grown shorter and days pass by like seconds now.
The reason is quite simple, AGE, this is the decisive factor - at least for me, when I was young I did not have a car, nor a job, I did not have
enough money to regularly go from state to state, county to county, city to city or town to town, what I now declare as a "long journey" back then
was a bike ride from my parents garage to the nearest country field, lake, quarry etc
When you are younger the world is much bigger, consider this, crawl on your hands and knees using a magnifying glass as your guide (youth) as opposed
to driving at accelerated speeds using road side signs as your new guide, travel is what makes time accelerate and occupation of the mind due to
Youth brings you exceptional gaps of not knowing what to do with time, maturity brings you many variables that simply struggle to fit in a simple day,
job, deadlines, travel, wife, children, football, games, sleep, friends.
