From the moment we humans hit the ground we are hellbent on velocity:
scampering, toddling, running, and we’re off!
Then we hit a certain age and age hits back.
Everything takes longer. We slow to a crawl.
Why do we start out fast – when we’ve got all the time in the world…
and slow down just when we begin running out of time?
Here’s an idea:
We should start out slow as children, and then speed up in our golden years.
Little kids would be much easier to catch.
And down the road – we might forget where we’re going – but we’d get there sooner.
Just a thought.
What would you put in the evolutionary suggestion box?
