Time to Think

One of the problems with the internet age (and there are many) is the lack of time to sit back and ponder.

A person asks you a question or makes a statement, and you respond before your thoughts have fully had time to gel. Some questions could take ten years or a lifetime to answer properly, but we must respond within minutes.

This hurried thinking and speaking is foolish and I wonder what it is doing to our minds when we do not have time to pursue thoughts down and properly digest them. A man whose food was not properly digested would become sick; do not our thoughts need also time to digest?

You're probably right; we'll have to ponder that! ;-)
