(Originally posted Friday, August 22, 2008 ) My close friend Carol has recently inaugurated a new blog called "No Clocks," which she's using to talk about life, memoirs, literature, aging and redemption. OK, I might have made up the redemption part. I see redemption in it, but maybe she doesn't. That's just where we differ.
You can read "No Clocks" at http://noclocks.wordpress.com/. [*see editor's note]
In response to her most recent article about people's constant tardiness, I'll ask the musical question: what things have we been late to recently?
--*The grace note intro to our solo saxophone rendition of George Bizet's "L'Arlesienne."
--*Our trip back to the laundromat to wrest the clothes from the washer before somebody took them out and piled them on top of the machine.
--*Our friend's period
--*The Sabbath elevator
--*Death, which is not a bad thing to be late to
*Editor's note: Carol has since taken down her blog, sadly for fans.
