Time, a moment or an age, what is it? Time we cannot touch, taste, has no smell, but we all wish we had more of it. More time to complete tasks. An extra few minutes sleep, less time traveling, more time arriving, time to relax, time to live, time to love.
Alarm clocks wake us with their constant beep, ringing or flashing lights, disturbing our dreams signaling its time to get up. Mobile phones play ringtones and vibrate, alerting us of the time. Another day has begun, tasks to complete, places to go, people to greet. Make time to eat. News headlines flash on television screens, weather, travel reports, the time repeated every two minutes. There is no escape from time. No time to relax with coffee, it is time to leave, deadlines to meet.
Radios play hit tunes, weather updates, traffic reports, and headline news on the hour our heads in a spin. Dressed to impress, check the time, soon we will be on our way. Collecting coats, grabbing car keys, wait your watch the time on your wrist, we feel lost with out it.
So many gadgets that tell the time, in faces square, oval or round. Digital numbers, dots or lines, roman numerals and figures are fine. Clocks on cookers, time the roast to perfection. Clocks on computers keep track of our lives. Security alarms keeping things safe, timed alerts while we sleep. Digital cameras record time on our photos, so we never forget a captured moment in time.
Large clocks on bus station, railway platform and airport lounge. Excite or annoy as we wait around, buses leaving on time, planes arriving late. Meeting friends under the clock at two, for a shopping date, needing to hurry do not want to be late. Have you ever wondered why we meet under clocks?
We creating a memory, a moment in time, to always remember.
Time it marks the hours, minutes and seconds of every single day. From midnight on New Years’ Eve signaling the start of a new year to the same time 365 days later.
Electronic devices clocks and watches with digital numbers flashing the time, accurate to the second, with quartz movements. Traditional watches with their cogs, wheels and springs arranged in elegant cases, worn with style. Wall clocks regardless of size are usually battery powered. Mantle clocks that tick into life with the turn of a key. These time pieces an essential part of our lives.
Telling us when and where to be. So we can organize our live to catch buses, trains, boats and planes. Attend appointments or meetings. Be on time for that special date.Time to eat, bathe and sleep, time rules our lives, allocation portions of our day for work and rest.
Marking time, date and place makes us very happy. The birth of a baby, birthday, wedding or graduation, moments in time recorded forever.Treasured moments in time.
We can all remember great tragedy by time, what we were doing when Kennedy was shot and killed. Where we were when we heard John Lennon had died. Who we were with, where and when, the plane hit the Twin Towers on 9/11. Moments in time etched in our minds for always.
Are you guilty of wasting time? When making an effort is too much trouble. Time is yours to do as you will. Make the most of every minute you have. Do all that you want to do and be happy you made the time.
Time is one of lives things that we cannot control. We can’t turn it back to fix a wrong or relive a treasured moment. If only we could speed it up so events happen sooner, like a wedding, holiday, or Christmas.
Time will just continue to tick away, the end of the day, the end of the week. Another month and it will soon be summer. Make your plans, dream your dreams in your mind you own a time machine. What would you do, would you go, back to what you know or would you go forward and learn more?
