How do you think of your spare time? Do you find ways to pass it or spend it?
How about money? We all spend money. But passing money is so absurd that isn’t even a part of our vocabulary. We all know that money is hard-earned, scarce and that it doesn’t grow on trees.
For most of us who come from a position of privilege, time is scarcer than money. In the evening of their lives, most people regret not having spent their time one way or the other. Not their money. But our language doesn’t acknowledge that. Yet.
Perhaps someday, passing time would sound as absurd as passing money.
