2/9/11: No Time

When I am editing a piece and stop, I write "Stopping place", so that I can search for "Stopping place" when I resume.

Tonight, as I opened a novel to edit, I for some reason thought of the Lou Reed song "There Is No Time", namely its chorus, which goes, "There is no time."

Several nanoseconds later, before the very slight reverb of Lou Reed's smoke-strangled post-Transformer voice had yet to leave the confines of my brain, I CTRL+F'ed and typed Stopping place and searched. Immediately beside this particular Stopping place were the words: "No time."
