Just looked at some definitions of Time, and these two resonate with what you saying, Alis; 1) the indefinite continued progress of existence and events in the past, present, and future regarded as a whole; 2) a point of time as measured in hours and minutes past midnight or noon. For me the wisdom lies in holding this paradox at all Times (pun intended). I started to 'savour the moment' with my 3.5 yrs old granddaughter, thinking perhaps it will help her as she grows to be a grown up. Even her little life is scheduled and busy (oftentimes I look at how her legs work overtime to keep up with adult's walk in Chronos). Savouring moments with her (smell the flower, look at the sun playing on a leaf, close your eyes and listen to a bird...), helps me to slow my Time as well.
