Time does seem to be going by faster. I do not think a minute is any longer or shorter now than it was 100 years ago, but rather we are much more
When I was in school we did not have cell phones or computers anyone would recognize. Typing was the mass means of written communication, and the copy
machines produced blue ink copies that had a wonderful chemical smell.
So we, as a collective group of people we not constantly bombarded with things engaging our minds 24 hours a day. We actually had time to ourselves.
And if we were with friends, that was the only thing on our minds.
Today, everyone is texting all the time, so you are always engaging your mind. We are surrounded with technology, computers, chat rooms, movies,
television that is awesome. We never really stop to have time for ourselves, there is always something going on.
Years ago we had this idle time. So naturally time would go slower. Try to just leave everything behind for a day. No phone, no tv, maybe a radio. Go
somewhere away from the masses. Time will seem to slow down, or at least it does for me. When our brains are not engaged all the time it seems there
is more time in a day.
If our recent past is any indication, technology will keep advancing, and our time will seem to be less and less.
I look forward to the time I can get up in the morning, watch the sun rise, sip coffee and read a paper again. Two hours then will seem like heaven.
Well, at least I can hope
