The ‘Spinning Wheel of Time’ has been with us since the beginning of time.

In 1951, Tennessee Williams wrote an article for the New York Times about the timeless world of a play. How interesting to compare his opening sentence with New York Times writer Tim Kreider’s article ANXIETY; The ‘Busy’ Trap describing how a busy mindset hinders our creativity and productivity alike in his July 2012 essay.

“Carson McCullers concludes one of her lyric poems with the line: “Time, the endless idiot, runs screaming ‘round the world.” It is this continual rush of time, so violent that it appears to be screaming, that deprives our actual lives of so much dignity and meaning, and it is, perhaps more than anything else, the arrest of time which has taken place in a completed work of art that gives to certain plays their feeling of depth and significance.”
