Even the busiest person sometimes finds oneself with time on one’s hands. But it takes a while for one to get used to that unrushed pace. One of these “busy” friends of mine recently dropped in with a message and I offered him a cup of tea. Out of sheer habit he said, “Oh no, I must rush”. But then he thought: Where to? He didn’t have any appointment or was needed elsewhere. So he stayed, we had a cuppa, we chatted, and the whole thing was really nice! I think he went away more . . . ‘human’.
