I'm going up to Baltimore this weekend. Gotta be careful, you know?

Reminds me of a poem of sorts I had a few years ago...concerning a father who was too busy to spend time with his son. It gave me pause on occasions when I thought I was too busy to play a game, go for a walk or whatever. Isn't here a psalm that speaks about being a time & place for everything?

It's in the Book of Ecclesiastes: "To everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven..." (3:1-8) The verses were an inspiration for a folk song "Turn, Turn, Turn" written by Pete Seeger in the late 50s or early 60s, I don't remember. Then a folk-rock band called The Byrds made it popular in the mid-60s.
