I’ve often found myself wishing that I could somehow stop time. As I’ve grown older, I’ve felt, more and more often, the sense that I am standing still and the world is moving around me. I want to stop time so that I can have a chance to catch up. (To catch up with sleep, to catch up with work, to catch up with all the things I like to do but don’t seem to find time for anymore.)
Wouldn’t it be great if there were a button you could press to stop time?
It turns out I’ve had such a button all along. Or at least for a few years. I just hadn’t noticed it:
Unfortunately, while I have found button (on my stove, of all places), I haven’t managed to work out the interface. I have yet to successfully stop time. I’ll continue with my efforts and keep you posted.
Meanwhile, it’s late and I need to go to bed. It’s time to stop.

Ooh, let me know if you find out how it works… I could really use a way to stop time, too. I hope my stove has that button!
This week without power has seemed like stopping time – a lengthy Sabbath. My watch battery died the first day, I became a good fireplace cook, and my blood is so thin, I can survive any winter.
Off to see if I can find a similar button in my house and then make it work!
You always make me smile…
Haha! If only…
