                     Old Time

1   Simple, Old Time

T is for Time. Time spent wisely, time wasted foolishly, time wished for passionately. Each of us have an allotted time--the question we perpetually ask is, where does time go when it passes us by?  Where does time reside?   In old clocks? Heritage buildings,  old, dusty classrooms where the hands of the old clock moved at a  slow, painful pace?

Time is fluid

 Time may feel hard, difficult, gentle and healing,  painfully slow, or incredibly fast.  Above all, it is persistent. The clock is ticking.  The seconds march on, curiously, whether we use it productively or not.  It seems logical,  diligent and clever to use every minute wisely, doesn't it? What do you do with your hours, minutes and seconds?  What did everyone do for years on end  in ancient days?  Study the stars? This old clock works may give us an idea how dedicated some people were. Can you imagine how long it took to build this?

Are we astute enough to realize that every second, every minute, every hour counts?  How about you?  Is your internal clock broken or just pausing? Starting a boring job may seem daunting, it may "take forever".  Try it.  Sit and think about it for 8 hours instead.  Imagine that.  Eight hours from now, your dreary job can be done, completed, something to be proud of--or you may have completely wasted the same 8 hours thinking about it. Time passes regardless what you personally do with it. Better check your time out. I thought you might even want to take a precious minute and think about it. That's why T is for Time. Is that Incoming I hear? Photo credits: 1   author 2   Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0  +FacebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedinmailFacebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedinmail

  1. I could discuss time for infinity! It’s funny: when people say they do not have enough time to do this, that or the other. I always say: We all have the same amount of minutes in a day. However, how much energy we expend pursuing things affects how we use our time, in my opinion. I also believe that things like illness or negative people rob us of energy.

    • Right on, Alexandra, Time is one of the most interesting things in life–at times it goes by in a blink–or drags out. Time flies when you’re having fun–but the real payback is when you use time productively. Btw, you’re right, negative people and illness do rob us of energy and consume time we should not be wasting. Thank you for commenting. “:)

    I’m thoroughly convinced Time speed up as you get older. I recall how the summers dragged on as a child and now…poof! it is gone before I know it’s upon us. Oh, so cruel is time at times…but wonderful too, when you take the time to visit–even online– with friends. 😀

    • Glory, I almost guarantee that time even slows down more when you’re sitting in school on a sunny day, I remember that, it was painfully slow, and it certainly speeds up when you’re having fun. And when you’re getting older. And visiting with friends as you suggested, and with people you love, wherever they may be. I ‘m guessing the key is to enjoy every second. They are rubbery, after all, and can be stretched. “:)
