Baseball, watches, and a mindful, measured pace of life
I am finding myself interested in baseball and watches for new reasons. I have always liked both. I used to like the heroes of baseball as a child. I loved my Mickey Mouse watch as a child also.
Nowadays I find myself fascinated with the order and movement of both baseball and a watch. There is a certain precision to both. Movements happen in predictable ways. Both have a pace to them. There are rules that govern each which brings order.
One other thing I like about baseball and watches is that time goes along at a measurable pace — it does not speed up. When I was younger I wanted time to go by quickly. Now that I’m older I want time to move more slowly.
I think I am valuing a more mindful, measured pace to life.
