I am still at my window gazing at the water tap. The immediate area has changed dramatically since that day in January that I noticed a leak. The ground underneath the tap has split, giving way to growing green stems and a bunch of colourful flowers.
It was definitely not like that back in January! Yet, the water drops kept falling to the earth, one after the other, through the changing seasons, first cold then hot. They did not stop; they kept going. While many of us were overwhelmed by all we had to do and were running about after this or that, with no real outcomes to show for it, the water was persistent, calm, and disciplined. It spent its time wisely, so to speak, as it leaked from the tap.
It seems to me the water drops were engrossed in their kairos. And I take my hat off to those few of us who, like them, maintain their vision of “life quality” and just keep going. Time is a valuable asset. Think of spending it wisely, productively, and genuinely. Ask yourself, what if I could trap time in a bottle? How would I use it?
