Never Enough Time

Never Enough Time: "People DO care about the meaning of ideas and WILL take the time to come together and talk. Over and over around the country I find eager fledgling philosophers pulling up chairs and breaking bread as they investigate the ideas they hold most dear and/or are the concepts that are currently lacking in their lives. Is there time to go to the gym? Yes. Is there time to do pushups for the mind? Yes. An entire town, Marblehead, Massachusetts, is devoting five months to their 'Marblehead Thinks' project. Enough time? They will be talking about the ways in which we can work to flow with time's passage, release ourselves from fear of change, and MAKE TIME for what really matters. Marblehead found its own stimulus package, investing in philosophical conversation and activities to enrich their community."
