Time -- the most valuable and highly transacted commodity. What it's worth depends on one's situation. Some what it to go by quicker -- to be done with it, some wish it would slow down, some wish for more hours in a day, etc. This is a story of the 'consequences' of what we do with time -- how we value it, or how we 'waste' it. Among others, this one poignant quote from the book: "When you are measuring time, you are not living it."
