Seconds Decay

In by Michael on July 31, 2010 at 4:30 pm

As you grow older, each new second of your life is a smaller proportion of your life so far. One second to a 20 year old seems twice as long as it does to a 40 year old. The 20 year old has half as many seconds in his life that have contributed to everything he is: his personality, intellect, opinions, and tastes. The early-in-life seconds hit you hard, like a wrecking ball. As you age, wrecking balls become sledge hammers become rocks become pebbles become dust. This second, right now, is bigger than any second you’ll ever live again.
