Right. Time. We’ve been talking about it a lot on magicalwords.net. And, I’ve been thinking about it a lot lately, likely because I have so little time in each day. Not enough time to meditate, rest, clean house, make jewelry, write (especially write). The deadlines imposed by life and editors, family and friends – not one of which I would change, mind you – make me nuts. Sometimes a bit depressed. Which reminds me that I need time to exercise – to keep the depression demons at bay. I just need more time. There are lots of ways to get more time. I know. I’ve been considering most of them. I could give up sleep. Write fewer books. (Not gonna happen.) Spend less time with family and friends. (But I spend too little time with them as it is.) Eat less. Okay – that’s a good one. It stays on the list. Give up my day job….ahhh. Yes. Now why do I have a day job? Oh. Right. Health insurance. I promised myself not to talk politics here, on the list. Yet, I have to say this one thing. If the US had affordable health insurance for its citizens, we self-employed types would have more time and could get more done. We would be more productive, less stressed, and the country would see huge increase in productivity. More productive people pay more in taxes because they make money, making the country better off financially. I could go on, naming the ways health insurance would make us all better off, and countering any disagreements that might get posted here, but I’ll just wait until after the election. Then, maybe, I’ll have more … time.
