Time--2017 A to Z Theme
My theme for the 2017 Blogging from A to Z April Challenge is "Time". The posts will be more philosophical, contemplative, and even autobiographical than instructional. No time management tips planned, but you never know with A to Z.
Always a work in progress--welcome to my blog...

Racing the Clock (#AtoZChallenge) (#BOTB winner)
Racing the clock can be exhilarating while you're at it, but I'd much rather take my time and enjoy the scenery as I stroll through life.
Racing the Clock
The pace of life can go so fast that we often lose track of what is around us as we go forward. We spend our lives stuck between yesterday and today, never completely sure of what lies ahead and often oblivious of the things we missed along the way. The racer will focus on the prize that awaits at the finish line while often missing out on those gems that are passed by along the way to that final destination. Clocks might stop, but time races on as we are swept forward. In the race of life, the winner is not the one who reaches the end first with the fastest speed.
Battle of the Bands Results
Speaking of races, my last Battle featuring the song "In Between Days" originally done by the Cure was a horse race from the starting gate. Then in the final stretch, the Ben Folds version took the lead to leave Cementerio Club in the dust.
My vote could go for either of these fine performances, but I'll cast mine along with the winning team. The frantic pace of the Ben Folds version seems more appropriate for the racing theme I've presented in this post though a good case can be made that the version Cementario Club captures the spirit of the lyrics in a more appropriate way. So it's Ben Folds for me in this Battle.
Final Vote Tally
Ben Folds 10 votes
Cementerio Club 6 votes
Next Battle of the Bands on Monday May 1st!
We're in the final stretch of the 2017 Blogging from A to Z April Challenge so just a few more posts until I wrap up my series on the It's About Time theme. I hope you stay with me until the end. Then I definitely hope you'll join me for my next Battle of the Bands post when I'll have a song chosen especially in honor of the occasion of the end of another Challenge.
Is your life more of a rat race or a pleasant stroll though the park? How do you slow down to enjoy life better? Do you enjoy it when you are faced with deadlines and a pressure to get things done?
