The 25th hourTechnically, a day has 24 hours. So what is this 25th hour in the title? It refers to somehow finding that one extra hour at least within our day's schedule to do something other than what we do daily.
The concept for this thread arose from a video that I got via WhatsApp which showed a couple who are in the medical profession maintaining a superb collection of old locks, clocks and other knick-nacks in their large home. They are often asked by friends where they get the time to expand on their collection, maintain it so well and enjoy it. They talk about the '25th hour' which is, they say, the time one needs to keep aside doing something enjoyable for oneself, perhaps including one's family members as well in some activity, or just doing something alone. It is akin to what one would call me time.
It's true isn't it, that often we will tell ourself "I wish I had the time" but invariably that something we wanted to do gets nudged aside a little, then slowly pushed into a corner, and eventually just shoved into the back recesses of our mind, eventually to dispapper into a hazy cloud. That 25th hour is thus often just a mirage.
