Time for Making

One of the inescapable facts of life is that it takes time to make. It takes time to make because true making flows from understanding, which comes only with patient application.

Of course, the degree of understanding required is a function of the scope of the thing to be made. That is, a small project generally requires less understanding than a large one.

So what's the practical upshot?

I got tied up, as a matter of pride, hunting for the solution to one last little problem at work and was late coming home. That meant some other necessary things took longer than I hoped. And so I nearly missed making an entry today.

I think this little episode underscores the utility of scheduling posts in advance.
