I don’t wear a watch, I haven’t since I was a teenager. For some reasons never quite worked for me, literally, they would either always decided to go too fast or too slow, or stop altogether – and wearing a watch that does show you the correct time is a bit of annoying.

So I have lived most of my life following my own time, and thankfully there are clocks everywhere to help out in those moments when I loose track of it. And I have to admit there is something quite liberating about not always knowing what time it is exactly.
