Do we homo-sapiens, thinking man, really need so badly to be more effective each day, is this yearn to accomplish more today than yesterday really in our best interest. We have a diary, a to-do list, a calendar and god knows how many watches; could you imaging a life without keeping track. Slow down what┤s the rush.

Man is the only species on earth that can measure time; man alone has the fear of time running out, but do we really need more watches, do we need to keep scoreboards. Does it makes you happy to be able to be more efficient, does it makes you satisfied and content, or do you just want more. Has this not gone far enough. It┤s time we all took it more slowly, to proper fell and enjoy the passing of time without keeping track of it. Time is a treasure, use it well, slow down.

I practice what I preach, so we had a slow day today in the Atlas. Apparently some rainfall had hit the summits further upstream. Often one river will be full of running water, and rivers coming from just a slightly different direction will be dusty and dry. Tomorrow it could be the other way around and the dust will be washed away in a rapid sweep.
