Warp 9, All the Time

The plan was to blog on Thanksgiving and other Thursdays since. I only managed a couple of Tuesdays and a Friday. I was going to write a Thursday Doors post today, but alas, the day is more than half over and no post yet. I know I say time flies, frequently, but I’m seriously at a loss for how I got to this day and time.

I joined a choir the first week of October. In the blink of an eye, we had a dress rehearsal for an upcoming concert and the final event — a visit to a senior living facility — looms and will be here, and over, before I know it. HOW DID THIS HAPPEN SO FAST?

Lots of things happened last month, as I recapped in Daisy Digest: November 2018, and I wondered then, too, how time is slipping by so quickly. (If you haven’t read that wrap-up, please, do stop by.)

I don’t want to sound like a broken record, but this time warp disturbs me. Now, if I’m the only one, and you all tell me I’m nuts and time is dragging along, then fine. I’m obviously being affected by aliens or some other outside paranormal force. But if you, too, feel as I do, then you tell me — WHAT IS GOING ON?

If you have a suggestion on how to slow things down, do share. I’ll take them and then do my best to


I'm a writer who loves to laugh and smile. :-)

  1. Darlin’. You are so not alone!
    And the worse thing is this: As you get older it goes faster!
    Like a toilet paper roll: The closer you get to the end, the faster it spins…
    And, let’s face it, are we not all just too effing busy all the time? Only way to slow it down is to cut things out.
    I think.
    I hope.

    1. Dale, I’ve heard that (about getting older) which is why is seems weird as I’m not the age the older people say that at! Your theory has merit, but I’ve scaled back and I’m not that busy and yet time goes faster! WHAT?!?!?

  2. We are in this together! The strange thing is that even youngsters say that time is passing more swiftly. I personally believe we have all been fed an alien potage to make time accelerate infinitely. I haven’t yet worked out what their plan is, but it seems we will all be long gone by the time it comes to fruition! Meanwhile, enjoy life.

    1. Peter, you are not the first younger at heart person to tell me that even younger people are saying it and that’s strange. Your theory of the alien’s doing something to us is possible. Who knows what happens when we’re sleeping?

      I shall! You, too!

  3. I feel exactly the same! And I thought it is because I am getting older. But even the younger ones say it. It is because live is busier than before and the input is more with technology and Twitter, Facebook etc. We are constantly feeding in and never have a pause. Even when people sit down they check their phone. I still like to sit and read or do my jigsaw and forget about time….. ( on a Sunday)

    1. Phew! I’m not alone. Thanks. I hadn’t considered technology’s role in this. You may be on to something there. I like to do things like you mention, and forget about time as well. Maybe even MORE of that is required. I’ll do an unscientific study by adding more and compile some results.

  4. Tara,

    Time is like the IRS, ain’t no use fighting because they always win.

    Do whatchou girl, when you do it and how you do it. Forget time, be you, because the you is sensational.

    Have a great weekend

  5. You are not alone. Time has been going by so quickly lately that I’m getting a good case of whiplash trying to keep up. I don’t know how to account for it, but do know how to slow it down. Sit and do nothing for 20 minutes. It will be a LONG 20 minutes. Or take on a project you don’t want to do. It seems like it stretches out forever. 😉

  6. HI Tara — Just zipped over from Dale’s blog to say howdy, and look, you’re already making STNG references, using my favorite character of all time! Talk about happy place!! I totally know what you mean about time warps, I was just thinking the same thing. How it already a week into December? How on EARTH (or in space) am I going to do ALL THE THINGS before leaving town for the holidays? Ah well, one hour at a time, that’s the fastest speed any of us can go. BTW, I did my caroling yesterday at our community center Holiday Bazaar and am going one more time tonight. It sure is fun! But boy, I’d be better if we actually *did* do some practicing beforehand (eep). I hope your choir concert goes/went well!

    1. Welcome, Joy, and thanks for the little bit o’ joy you’ve brought here with your comment! I loves me some Picard as well. You have excellent taste! And yeah… ALL THE THINGS. I know, right? Good luck to us both.

      Your caroling sounds like fun. My concert went well (post on it to come, of course!). Twas nervous, but ended up having so much fun! We did practice, every week, and we still hit some bumps… but that’s OK. It’s all about the doing of it. I don’t care what Yoda says… try sometimes is good enough!

      1. My second night of caroling was even more fun. We had a big crowd of singers and even more audience members at our community park, and then we walked around to various houses that had “commissioned” us as entertainment (paying in mulled wine and hot cider and cookies), serenading the neighborhood as we walked along.

        I’ve never agreed with that Yoda saying, myself. I think there is *only* try. In most cases in life, you have no control over whether you “do” it — whether someone else is better than you at the competition, or the editor chooses another story to publish, or random events intervene to throw off your otherwise organized day. The saying I much prefer is: If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again!

  7. I’ve just warped in from Dale’s blog, nice to meet you. Also, time is my enemy. I never have enough of it and I’ve already noticed that it’s the 9th already and I haven’t even started decorating for Christmas. My theory on time is that it’s tied directly to Procrastination and the more I procrastinate the faster time flies as though some evilly organized Gawd is punishing me. That’s just MY theory though. 😉
