While the UK & Europe turn their clocks back an hour on Sunday, this weekend, just to add confusion to an already chaotic world, North America will not do the same once again this year until a week later on Sunday, November 6th!
The clock talked loud. I threw it away, it scared me what it talked. ~Tillie Olsen, Tell Me a Riddle
Old Time, in whose banks we deposit our notes
Is a miser who always wants guineas for groats;
He keeps all his customers still in arrears
By lending them minutes and charging them years.
~Oliver Wendell Holmes
Time is a dressmaker specializing in alterations. ~Faith Baldwin
How long a minute is, depends on which side of the bathroom door you’re on. ~Zall’s Second Law
How do you approach the wheel of time —
do you ride her
stick your foot in her gears
ignore her slow grinding
write poems of her elusive movement
sync yourself with her dance
or cry out in the cold night of her injustice & indifference?
Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
Cheers to an opportune ‘take & make’ Fine Friday & weekend that sings—timely!
