David: Summer Days Flying Faster

David Townsend: It's amazing how much faster time travels as we get older. Here it is two days after Independence Day. How did that happen? When I was 12 summers lasted nearly forever. There was time to squeeze in church camp, Scout camp, swimming lessons, Summer Reading, and a family vacation - usually involving Iowa for some absurd reason - and still have plenty of time to just goof off with my friends.

Question: David brings up a great points re: the way time flies now. When I was 12, the summers did go on forever. Now, they fly by so rapidly that I have to choose among the things I'd like to do. Why's that.
