Peggy Noonan on Time

Peggy Noonan must have been reading up on her Augustine when she wrote this essay on time and its uses. It is well worth taking the time to read it.

Noonan combines the darkness of Augustine, which is a commonplace, with the exuberance of Augustine, which is more frequently forgotten. As we all scurry getting ready for the holidays, attending parties, writing cards (actually, no cards from MSW this year - the book is due!), and shopping, always shopping, it is good to remember, as Noonan recalls, that we are called to pray unceasingly.
