Two hands, twelve numbers. Ticks and tocks, more commonly known as the haunting rhythmic reminder of the brevity of life.
How can an inanimate object and an abstract concept dictate the way we go about our days?
Why do we make ‘time’ the scapegoat for our unfulfilled dreams?
We spend so much ‘time’ worrying about ‘time’, that we end up losing ‘time’ NOT doing the things that set our hearts and souls on fire.
So instead of willing ourselves to the demands of a 24-hour cycle, let’s bite our tongue at them.
Take a train to a place you’ve never been. Wander its streets. Absorb its sounds and smells. Feel the essence of ‘time’ begin to wither away. Because what is its business here, really?
Yes, ‘time’ is important, but so is living.
