Time again



“Time flies!”

“Hours are too slow!”


“I wish I could go back to those days again”

“May those days never come back again”

“24 hours a day are not enough! I wish our days were longer”

“One day seems like years for me”


I wonder what our problem with time is!


Imagine the chaos we would face if, for only one day, time obeyed the desires of people. The world would go mad!!! Days would want to go faster to make someone finally have that long-awaited reunion. But they would want to go slower to prevent an impending event from coming.


Time would want to stop to satisfy those who want things to last forever as they are now. It would want to go backwards to give a second chance to those who made mistakes.

To satisfy us, time would want to cut itself into pieces, rearrange the chronology of events and maybe delete some parts.

But as crazy as this seems, would it really satisfy people if ever this happened?? There are big chances that calculations would turn wrong again. Rearranging the chronology of events might get us into a bigger mess, and we would wish again that time was arranged differently.

We’re trying to play an unbalanced game against time. Every time I think about this, I get the image of dwarves trying to block a giant and change his road, while the giant just walks and walks without paying attention to them.


That ship is going with or without us.

Dearest Kaoutar!
I’m awfully sorry I’ve just noticed that comment. Believe it or not. Now I know who you are for sure. I had doubts before. Honestly, I was confused because in your blog you mentioned Rabat as your location, whereas I knew that you lived in Casablanca when I met you. Anyway, it’s always a pleasure for me to visit your blog. Allow me to add just one thing : I really miss you.

Mr Lagouader,

I used to commute. Rabat is where I live and Casa is where I worked then. Mer7ba bik again :)
