Time


By CHRIS MILLSPAUGH

"Time keeps on ticking, ticking into the future." So the song goes. We're all involved with time. You can take the time or waste the time or make the time. Is it too early or is it too late? Sometimes we have too much time and sometimes there's not enough. We have time on our hands and we have no time to do it all. There's old times, new times and no time like the present. There's a lot of time left for that but you don't have the time for this. You call that a good time? There's always time for fun. Have a nice time. It's all about time.

Why am I so obsessed with time? It's because I'm getting older each day and when you realize that, you feel you're running out of time—there doesn't seem to be enough time to do all the things you want to do. In the last few weeks, there were people I care about facing the end of their times because of accidents and failing health. It was almost their time. We all have to be aware of our time here on earth.

That's why you have to organize your time. There's a time to work and a time to play. There's no time for hate, bad feeling or bad thoughts. There's always time for love, laughter and hope. It's time we all realized this. Time is all we got and we have to make it work to our utter satisfaction.

OK, this column is almost finished because I'm running out of time, so let me leave you with this: Time is precious. Use it well. Don't waste it on things that have no meaning to you. It's a short life. You must enjoy what you do every day and live it like it's your last. Adopt a positive outlook and love the time you have here on this planet. After that, there may be wonderful times ahead, but, for now, have a nice time.

(The word "time" was used 36 times in this column)

Nice talking to you this time. (All right, 37.)
