A California artist, teacher, and author of books about disconnecting from commercial culture offers a dazzling meditation on the possibilities and abuses of time. With its sprawling range of perspectives, historical references, and moving personal vignettes, this audiobook needs a performance from someone like Kristen Sieh. She narrates with emotional breadth and cultural awareness that honors the author’s worldview and hopeful insights. Her relaxed command of her talent and audible understanding of each idea gives this message incredible power and influence. The author shows how keeping track of time is a modern invention that is still used to maintain social inequities, perpetuate mindless consumption, and frustrate our search for meaning. Obsessing about measured external time keeps us from connecting more fully with our deeper selves and the beauty around us. T.W.
