Lewis Carroll in his children’s classic, “Alice in Wonderland,” wrote about an interesting character that I often relate to.
Now, it’s not the mischievous Cheshire Cat, nor is it the eccentric Mad Hatter, or even the confused Alice.
But instead, it’s the rushing white rabbit who, in Disney’s version of the classic, hurries past Alice carrying a pocket watch muttering the words: "I'm late! I'm late! For a very important date! No time to say hello, goodbye! I'm late! I'm late! I'm late!"
Ugh. The words of that hurried bunny sometimes swirl around inside my head as I bring my daughter to band practice 15 minutes after it starts. They taunt me as I painfully write down my “arrival” time at the doctor’s office, inwardly cringing because it’s long past the actual “appointment time” that I’m also required to write.
And, I can hear the rabbit’s ditty in the desperate tone of my son as he tries to get me out the door a half hour before his practice. I know he hopes that this will get him there on time.
There are days when I wish we could do away with clocks. How dare they try to dictate my life around their little clicking faces? Sometimes I feel that I’m judged by how well I obey the long and short hand of time.
