The most important daily practice
Lost time is never found again. (Benjamin Franklin)
Fragments from imaginary dialogues
“What is the most important daily practice?”
“Isn’t that a bit grim?
Why not contemplate life?”
“In contemplating death you are contemplating life. They’re two sides of the same coin.
There’s also value in their contrasting [<link; short read] effect. No better way to appreciate the immeasurable value of your time.”
“I keep forgetting it.”
“That’s why it’s a daily practice.”
