Time: ain't no one got time for that!

Time and modernity--two things which I find incredibly challenging... lets add the internet and stir! So how many hours are there in a day exactly? Time is constantly moving forward (this forced linearity seems to be certain) and as mere mortals we are expected to move forward with it--we are all moving toward something--be it an education, a "better body", a skill...anything really--"the good life" seems to be a common goal. My point is time seems to be constantly running out and as a mere human slowing down and even stopping time is (perhaps) sadly not possible. My point has to do with this blog and time. I am still interested in the blog although I have strong feelings and concerns regarding the online world and its affects on the offline world. Perhaps while trying to explain this time issue another matter should be mentioned: the aim of this blog. In short, there is none--this blog is not going towards anything--there is no goal--nothing we want to achieve. We don't have sponsors and the only thing we are selling is the western neolilberal life two twentysomethings are leading. If we consider marketing and the modern world--product placement is within the home of everyone, in our facebooks (which is for the older generations), instagrams, snapchats on our bodies in the form of what we wear--we are all selling and producing and there is no escape from that. Everyone is selling something--a walk down the street makes you a type of billboard in motion--so this blog will include various brands because in the end it is information which we have obtained through experience and will share that with you. The you in this case can be one reader, no readers or an infinite amount of readers--that too does not matter. Bad spelling and grammar will happen, often. Wine and the idea that summer is approaching have been very inspiring lately so they will be the upcoming themes. There is no schedule to follow so perhaps the next post will happen before the end of summer:) Until we meet again here is a modern cow and some modern cows and quotes on time.

Lyhyesti käännettynä: aika menee eteenpäin ja blogi siinä mukana--blogille ei ole nyt mitään tavoitteita, vaatimuksia tai halua menestyä. Lukijoita voi olla satoja tai ei yhtään--kaikki on ok. Inspiraatiota on kuitenkin ilmestynyt niin viinvinkkejä on luvassa tulevaisuudessa...mutta "tulevaisuus" on itsessään aikamoinen käsite joten tulkaa välillä käymään www.unionoffood.comissa jos olette kiinnostuneita:)

Time is a sort of river of passing events and strong is its current; no sooner is a thing brought to sight than it is swept by and another takes its place, and this too will be swept away.

Time changes everything except something within us which is already surprised by change.
