My guest post at NPR: "Wishing for Less Time"

National Public Radio's program Being featured an essay I wrote as a guest contributor on their blog.
I never used to go anywhere without my cell phone. It was not only a means of communication, but my sole timepiece, and not knowing the time made me crazy.
You can read the rest here.

  1. Reading this made me put my watch on.  Especially since my cell phone has been dead and unable to give me the time for more than a week.

  4. Hi Leah, Loved your article and can empathize with your feelings re time.  My wife and I own a mountaintop cabin in WV and it is so remote that one cannot get a cell phone signal.  I find it so relaxing to be there as we do, in fact, throw time out the window.  What a great feeling!!!!!!

  5. Thanks, Louis! I wish our culture and economy supported throwing time out the window more often.

  7. Leah, liked the article.  Did you notice that at the bottom they called your blog The Whole of All the Earth?  The link is right, though.

  8. Thanks, Ashton. I didn't notice the change in title the first time I looked, but a friend pointed it out. I'm not sure if the "typo" was intentional or not (perhaps "whore" isn't appropriate for the polite company of NPR?). I think if I'd been the editor, I would have hyperlinked the word "blogs" and just left out the title if I found it objectionable, but I'm happy to have been published and appreciate the link just the same.
