#BlogFlash2012: Day Four – Busy
If our condition were truly happy, we would not need diversion from thinking of it in order to make ourselves happy. – Blaise Pascal
Everyone is busy these days-from babies, who ought to be busy, mastering their universe, to overcommitted teens. High-achieving college students prepare busily for graduate school, their slacker counterparts busily partying, making up for lost time. Adults stay busy working demanding jobs, raising children, making ends meet. TV, radio, video games-all of these keep us busy, as we fiddle busily with our devices-iPads, iPods, cellphones, laptops, video games.
We’re hurtling downhill, distracted, preoccupied by the frenzied busyness of our world. Who’s driving this train? I wonder. What will happen when it reaches the edge of the cliff?

I am loving this Blogflash! Here's Day four: Busy: http://thelastkrystallos.blogspot.co.uk/2012/08/b…
I dug up something from my archives for this post.
A life less lived.
Once again it's a poem.
Here's the continuation of my Mind Breaker series. Enjoy :)
It's so true what you say about our busy lives and as to who is driving the train – that's a very deep question! It's a great post!
My take on Day 4 is here: http://wp.me/p1UhOl-6H
Need to get BUSY now checking what other people have made of the prompt! Lol :o)
I agree. Too many demands.
My new resolution is on http://adrarasdreams.blogspot.co.uk/2012/08/blogf…
Terri, you've got it. Explain how life is so out of control these days. Speaking of which, that's why my submission is so late…lol.
Here's my Day 4 http://www.melinagillies.com/2/post/2012/08/blogf…
Busy, busy, busy. When will it end and we can just be? Very thought provoking post. I have no idea who's driving the train but let's hope they give us warning when it comes to an eventual stop . . before we all burn ourselves out!
Here's my link to my bit of fluff on Busy.
The funny thing is that as busy as we all are, doesn't it sometimes feel like nothing gets accomplished?

Day 4: http://stevenpaul-ashviper.blogspot.com/2012/08/b…
Enjoyed yours Terri. Took me awhile to get going today.
Hope you enjoy.
All of us who have not yet become billionaires are busy. The billionaires are busier. Here's my take. Wish I'd have polished it more. I was busy.
Between my 11 1/2 hour work days and living with my three grandchildren, BUSY is buzz word in my life!! But when it comes down to it, I'll choose time with the kiddos over everything else, because I'll never get these years back!!
Here's my link for Day Four: http://www.sweetbananaink.com/2012/08/04/blog-fla…
Oh I completely agree! I'm blessed to be enjoying time with my grandchildren at the moment, and I'm making the most of every minute!
I'm so thrilled that you're enjoying it, Kriss. Being creative can be hard work, but it should bring us joy too!

Here's my post – http://dreaming-of-stories.blogspot.co.uk/2012/08…
Was preoccupied by an irritable trojan acquired yesterday so am slightly behind schedule, but ever perservering.
Definitely agree! Sometimes I have so many things to do that I become immobilized and can't do anything.
Here are thoughts on my busy plans http://librarygirlreads.blogspot.com/2012/08/busy…
I really like your piece for "Busy". It's insightful and wonderfully written. :)
