     I am the Timekeeper. I am the one who divides your life into segments and those segments into segments. I am an active agent in your soul. I am the deadline, the due date, the thin veneer of control which efficient management desires. You must obey otherwise your accomplishment, no matter how skillfully executed, is flawed because it was late. “Timing is everything.” We started early, you and I. Remember Elementary School? Three tardies equals an absence.
Don’t you judge your life on someone else’s time-line? Of course you do! Start times, quitting time, lunch time, dinner time, time off, clock in, clock out. And, generally aren’t you too young? Too old? Too early? Too late? An extra day off? No way!  What IS your life expectancy? How many days until Christmas? We build prisons based on reading scores of pre-K kids knowing they are already too late to EVER catch up. We grant abortions based on fetus age. The Timekeeper carves up of your life, your soul, society and the Earth.
