a world of worries

How much collective time is spent on worry? This self-serving grail cannot be overrated, I suspect. Its power and light leaves Shangri-La and the world's great religions in the shade. It is an apostasy in human terms to question its motives and effects, but if all the time humanity spent worrying could be harnessed for other purposes, is there anything that could not be accomplished?

I don't know, but it occurred to me today that setting worries aside -- saving them for a time when there was unlimited space in which to exercise and enjoy them -- might make life a lot easier.

And when might that time be?

Well ... worry when you're dead. There's plenty of time and no fear of contradiction.
