things truly worth the time

Watches seem to be the big thing for spring. Chunky ceramic beauties that make a fashion statement that says much more than 'it's a quarter past four.' There's a good article in the April REAL SIMPLE magazine where several authors write short essays about time-consuming tasks that are worth every minute to them. Making the bed is key to one person, making a cake from scratch is important to another. A dad talks about learning to meander rather than rush. Taking a road trip and having a civilized breakfast are also mentioned. My favorite is about writing thank you notes. It's got me thinking: for all of our worry about running out of time, maybe we should concentrate instead on filling it with things that matter to us the most.
