Creating on Borrowed Time

"The desire to make the most of every second can bring a sense of urgency, we can feel rushed and pressured. But what if we slow things down, take a breath and give time to make the most of the things we value. Our understanding of time is intrinsically bound to our experience of light. We shape our lives around the solar day and we defy the rules of nature when we feel we need more time."
