    Like it says. I can’t believe it’s Easter time again. Didn’t we just DO this?

    How can I slow down time a little bit.......the speed is beginning to make me queasy. Any suggestions?

    Leave Earth with near the speed of light. Easter time will not be later for us who remain, but it will take longer for you to notice it.

    I've always said that time expands and contracts. Doing something dull that you don't really wanna do? Time Drags. Something exciting and fun, goes buy in a flash.
    On the other hand, the roadmarks that we pay attention to are fewer and further between, so when they occur we think it's recurring after less time.

    Time is relative.
    As a two year old kid christmas appeared two times during your life. So waiting for next christmas means waiting 50% of the time that you spent on earth until now. An endless wait!
    When you are 4 years old waiting for next christmas means waiting for 25% of the lifespan that you have under your belt. When you`re 10 one year is only 10% of your experienced time. ..When you are 50: :eek::eek:
    You cannot slow it down.

    One thing I've noticed is as you get older, time flies by faster than it used to.
    My advice is to take up a hobby that takes a lot of bonsai

    I have a million hobbies. Just built this so my six-year-old grandson will get interested in rocketry!

    An ancient philosopher’s contemplations:
    “Vanity of vanities, all is vanity."
    What profit has a man from all his labor
    In which he toils under the sun?
    One generation passes away, and another generation comes;
    But the earth abides forever.
    The sun also rises, and the sun goes down,
    And hastens to the place where it arose.
    The wind goes toward the south,
    And turns around to the north;
    The wind whirls about continually,
    And comes again on its circuit.
    All the rivers run into the sea,
    Yet the sea is not full;
    To the place from which the rivers come,
    There they return again.
    All things are full of labor;
    Man cannot express it.
    The eye is not satisfied with seeing,
    Nor the ear filled with hearing.
    That which has been is what will be,
    That which is done is what will be done,
    And there is nothing new under the sun.
    Is there anything of which it may be said,
    "See, this is new"?
    It has already been in ancient times before us.

    I can relate. I wrote a song and performed it many many years ago...”Move’n much to Fast”

    I wrote it when I was 30, I’m in my late 60’s now. The words and melody still echo through my mind at every new milestone

    Move'n, move’n, move’n..much to fast

    Move'n...........I blew through my past

    Tony, I can sympathize. Everything seems to move fast for me, at my age. On the other hand, I am waiting for the day (June 24th) when I retire and go hang out with my grandchildren, and it's going soooooo slooooooooow. ;)

    My Fav: Life is like a roll of toilet paper. The closer you get to the end, the faster is goes.

    Enjoy middle age brother Sims, it goes even faster than your youth. Two days ago, my baby girl turned 32 years old and she's a mom herself.

    Mostly because you'll be quite distressed by the acceleration, and too scared to think about easter.
