There’s always time.

How do we go through the day? Following a plan or at random? One thing’s for sure: there’s always time. Time runs in the background and we keep a close eye on time. Time has a special value.

Including when we look back at the life of Rudolf Hauschka: he was able to take the time to embark on a long journey overseas to Australia. But Hauschka was also able to structure his time every day in a way that balanced his work and other interests. If we are mindful of how we use our time, it becomes full of possibilities. Rudolf Hauschka’s relationship with time is also reflected in the way he measured it. His silver, handmade spindle clock from the 18th century is ornately decorated with an elegantly designed clock face. Its worn condition is a testament to its frequent use. It required attention, needing to be regularly wound by hand. We can’t stop the passage of time. But we can show it as much appreciation and respect as Rudolf Hauschka showed his watch. And this way, time becomes richer.
