TIME

It's just over a week until I start work, and suddenly all the things I had time to do when I was unemployed for over 3 months have come to the fore and I have to try and get them done in a week ... I guess that is just not going to happen!


Macbeth:
To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

Macbeth Act 5, scene 5, 19–28

I've never read Macbeth so thanks for sharing this - I really like it, especially the last half.

Good luck getting your things done but remember, the only person who had everything done by Friday was Robinson Crusoe ;-)
