Watch

Listening to a BBC Africa report and reading the New York Times.

This section caught my eye: “People stay up late here,” Leriadis said. “We wake up late and always take naps. I don’t even open my office until 11 a.m. because no one comes before then.” He took a sip of his wine. “Have you noticed that no one wears a watch here? No clock is working correctly. When you invite someone to lunch, they might come at 10 a.m. or 6 p.m. We simply don’t care about the clock here.”

This article is talking about an island off the coast of Greece that is reported to have some of the healthiest, and oldest, residents in the world.  Hard to document, but you can’t deny that our bodies start to fall apart under all the time-based stress we put them through.

Late nights, late mornings and a glass of wine without a watch.  Sounds like a better life to me.
