BB+TBWe will never be this young again

bb_tb_dressed_up

We always knew that, but didn’t

Believe it, until one day, looking

At pictures of how we were, when

 

We were that young, smiling photos,

The happiness blended with youth,

We had to confess that time had

Passed, happily and with the stealth

 

Of time slipping by, unnoticed and

Quieter than the images of those young

Happy people looking back at us

Revival

Opaque
Opaque or transparent? …Lest I Forget

Some six months ago, I shut down one of my many blogs, Observations: Lest I Forget  and transferred much of its content to this one. I fully intended to put new content here and leave the …Lest I Forget site to history.

Truth is, I have a lot about which I wish to opine, and enjoy doing so in different fora and diverse platforms. So  Observations: Lest I Forget is being revived today, with fresh content all its own.

Enjoy.

Spring announces its arrival in whispers with an appearance of tulip buds and flocks of starlings.

Setting the clock back an hour for a species daylight saving is just icing on spring’s cake.

As for the time, let me ruminate thus:

At 9 o’clock that’s really 10 o’clock, that is really 9 o’clock, I contemplate the nature of time.

As midnight strikes somewhere on December 31st, a distant time from now, this spring time about to be, the New Year cascades in ever echoing murmurs around the globe.

When and where is it truly 12 o’clock, the middle of the night? We cannot seem to get a fix on the time today, March 12th, when we have set our clocks back. 10 a.m. is an artifice today.

Is time relative, or can it be fixed? Can being late be an alternate fact?
