Too much to do! Not enough time! Sound familiar?
Limiting measurements of time and space do tend to get us into tight places. They remind me of a Winnie the Pooh story I used to read to my children. Pooh ate so much honey during a visit to Rabbit that he got stuck in the front door to Rabbit's house when he tried to leave.
" 'Oh, help!' said Pooh. 'I'd better go back.'
