Vienna is Waiting

“Slow down, you crazy child
And take the phone off the hook and disappear for awhile
It’s all right, you can afford to lose a day or two
When will you realize, Vienna waits for you?” – Billy Joel

Despite Billy Joel’s assurances that Vienna is waiting, it’s hard to slow down.

Instead, I often find myself so busy rushing to accomplish and accumulate that I forget the purpose of accomplishing and accumulating.

With just so many hours in a day and so many days in a life, I never want to run out of time.

But, maybe now I don’t have to.

The other day I learned that mankind is about to enter a longevity boom. Anyone who can make it to the year 2030 can expect to see their 110th or even 120th birthday.

Vienna may just have more patience than anyone realizes.
