A note on timing


Constant readers may have noticed that over the past couple weeks, I've increasingly been posting items based on something I've seen in the newspapers or received via email that very day.

This is different than the approach I've taken in the past, to wit: putting stuff up whenever I felt like it, regardless of whether it was "old news" or "new news."

I've always liked — and agreed with — Stewart Brand's definition: "History is news that stayed news."

Anything of any value will still be interesting a week or month later.

But I digress.

The reason I've been more chronologically up-to-date is that somehow I've gotten my pineal gland, biological clock, circadian rhythm and whatever else is involved organized enough so that I wake up every day around 8 a.m. (sans alarm), after lights-out around midnight the previous day.

That lets me get to the papers and magazines from which stem the seeds of bookofjoe in such a way that I can be up here on the treadmill rocking out by around 11 a.m., in plenty of time to feature stuff from that day's intake.

And that's all I have to say about that.

Your right. Timing is everything. Today is a day when I reflect on my timing I guess. There was a time when I didnt' believe that saying. There was a time when I would have said no way, there is no such thing as "timing is everything". Now I know that in reality timing is such a thing that no one can ever really totally control.

So why do we rush everything? One day we want something so bad, we get it, then the next minute, day, week or year even we decide we really did not want that?

Just some personal reflections on this one. I find myself doing the same things at the same time of the day. I just wonder if I am always suppose to do that? What would happen if I didn't start having a fit because no one is in bed at 9 pm? Or what would happen if I just said you know I don't care if dinner is made or dishes done at the normal dinner hour? Secretly I do kind of mess up my times though. I will push somethings off until the last minute then really rush. So I think I only hurt myself when I do mess up the times. Silly stuff today. OH I ALMOST FORGOT HAPPY VALENTINES DAY Ya'll!
