Circle of Time. . .



Circle of Time

"Time flies," some say.
The seconds, the minutes, the hours. . .
Then. what is its final destination, I wonder?

What mode of travel does it use?
What security precautions does it have to pass through?
Does it even have a destination?
Why then, does it keep moving in circles, repeating itself, twice a day, day after day?

Maybe "they" are wrong.
Time doesn't travel . . . but we do.
It is repetitious after just half a day . . .
That's just a mere 12 hour trip repeated forever. . .
Same destination. . . No joy in exploring. Same content.
Never getting off and enjoying life or even feeling sorrow.
It's the people in the universe around it that keeps moving forward.
Time is never able to return to the past and still be in the present
Like we can with memories . . .
Time just adds seconds, minutes, hours to its stay.

Until one day, our journey stops and our memories are over.
But time goes on . . . eternally.
So which is the better deal?

What do you think?

What if we are time? What if we understand life through this concept?

We can't be time -- our bodies die. Time goes on eternally.

Some philosophies says that time is like you have depicted it her - circles. According to science time and space are intertwined. So like space -time goes on as well as space. The part of it we are in is the one we are aware of.

Yesterday is history. The future is tomorrow. But each today is a gift; that's why we call it "present"...

I think time as we experience it is only part of something much more complicated - something we mere human do not and cannot understand.

This is way too deep for me today.

I'll have to ponder this one Paulie. I like the next to last part best until you asked the question which made me think & wonder with no anwers at this moment in time. But don't you feel better for having expressed yourself?

About Me

My photo
WELCOME to my blog. I hope you will return often.

I am on my third digital camera, all Olympus. I enjoy using it and sharing my photos. I also enjoy writing. I hope to share a little of each on this blog. My main blog is Postcards From the Northwest.

Kerri and I will continue to add benches to "For the Love of Benches Continued . . . " blog also. It is good to continue to share with her!

Continuation of the Kiggins House Re-model photos were lost when my computer crashed.

The latest city project, TURTLE PLACE, will unfold here as I have time to add photos. It is complete and maybe I can find enough photos someday to show you the final results. Next project after the two I am working on now. . .
