''The elf-queene, with hir joly compaignie, Daunced ful ofte in many a grene mede.” Geoffrey Chaucer "The Wife of Bath’s Tale"


I took a short road trip this week and was sharply aware how it was a unit of experience that began when I left my home and ended when I returned.  I didn't perceive it as 3 days of time but as one self contained unit.  A friend just returning from vacation noted the same perception of her cross country trip. I have been aware of this for almost 20 years but this was a good reminder -  as soon as I got home the 'trip' seemed to slip into archival mode, along with past trips or even dreams.  Did I really go or did I imagine the trip?  Apparently it's a "time" management tool whether learned or natural, that offers us useful benefits.  Don't have enough time?  Well, how about just units of experience?
