#132 #thealarmclock no longer has power over me as term has ended. Whilst this is obviously lovely, it has made me think about how much we are governed by time, from the moment we wake up in the morning, sometimes right up until we go to bed. The clock never stops ticking, and time can be very unforgiving at times. I seem to have a reputation for literally running from one place to another to try to be on time! We are all ruled by #time to a point and it is unrealistic to suddenly ignore it, but I wonder how refreshing it would be to carve out a time when time did not matter each week. Imagine a time where you do not need to be at work, or with anyone, no one is relying on you for a lift, the children do not need to be collected from anywhere. This time would be just for you…how would you spend it? How would you protect it? Try giving it a go and see how refreshing it can be. (at Ripon College Cuddesdon)
