Q of Q — It’s a Matter of Time

It’s been a while since I’ve responded to one of the Queen of Questions, aka The Haunted Wordsmith’s, Q&A posts. But this one is about time, and I’ve got some time on my hands, so why not?

    1. What is something you always put off for as long as you can? Filing my taxes.037BD8AF-4CEB-4D6D-BA92-F168DA645136

    3. What time period do you think you most belong in? This time period.

    4. What book would have a completely different feel if it was set in a different time period? “Lord of the Rings” set in modern times.

    5. How do you like to waste time? Some (e.g., my wife) might say that the time I spend writing and reading posts is a waste of time.

    9. Do you think we are nearing the end of times (for those who believe in it)? I don’t believe in the religious notion of End Times, but I have to admit that since the election of Donald Trump, we may be nearing the end of rational times.

    10. Armageddon is upon us…do humans survive? Sure. We’re a hardy bunch.

    11. How will human’s time on Earth be up? The planet will cease to be able to support life due to inaction on climate change. There, I said it.

    I enjoyed your responses. Garrison Keillor uttered my favorite quote regarding time: “Wisdom often come with age, but sometimes age travels alone”.

      According to QuoteInvestigator.com, “In addition to John Lennon and Bertrand Russell, the saying has been attributed to T. S. Elliot, Soren Kierkegaard, Laurence J. Peter, and others.” And, of course, to Fandango!
