…you measure the passage time by how many miles you could have run in the interim. Like the 8 miles I could have run today had I not convened with some other soccer moms to sort out a team roster situation. And the 6 miles I could have covered earlier this week instead of sitting at the computer fielding emails. Sitting is particularly unnerving. So is standing in line at a government office. If I can run a 10K in the time it takes to get something accomplished, that activity had better be good. It had better be equally worthwhile.
