Clocks slay time... time is dead as long as it is being clicked off by little wheels; only when the clock stops does time come to life.

William Faulkner

So during those first moments of the day, which are yours and yours alone, you can circumvent these boundaries and concentrate fully on spiritual matters. And this gives you the opportunity to plan the time management of the entire day.

Menachem Mendel Schneerson

Time has been transformed, and we have changed; it has advanced and set us in motion; it has unveiled its face, inspiring us with bewilderment and exhilaration.

Khalil Gibran

The fire within.

by Don Case on Saturday, January 1, 2011

You can not see it, it is just there.

It can not be felt, it has to be that

other sense, the one that is always

just out of grasp and sits just behind

your left ear.

When you stick a big wad of gum on a

top it does interesting things, that

odd balance dance.

But then, truth is there is no gum

nor a top. There are times when the

world seems odd.

It is the uneven way things are

compiling, organizing, categorizing.

The box gets bigger but it is still

slower than the clutter that fills it.

A worry here, a distraction there,

another new interest, what was the

last one?

Oh the list of responsibilities,

they pile up till the box has no

corners or edges.

The world as we know it is changing

before our eyes.

Then reality comes right up and

slaps you in the face.

Breath.......now breath again, life

is what you make it. The air we take

in is what sustains it, the fuel that

feeds the fire.

Breathing is inspiration and release

as is our thought, our work, our love,

life itself.

What is your thought, the one you hold

dear but never express? What is your

work, the secret one that drives you?

What is your love, the essence of your

desire? These are your life and

motivation. Live them to the fullest

for the clutter is not life but just

things and stuff. Start a new year

with a new breath of life and a fire

un-quenched.

Happy new year!

Don, I love this! I heard it told; There is no rabbit - this is not a hat - I like the way you put it.
For me and mine: It's not the best beginning, nor is it the worst ending

Time - what is time. Who was the first person deciding to harness time, not only in the obvious division of night and day and the seasons, but hours, minutes, months and years.
Animals, those who profit in a way from us, know when it is feeding time, going for a walk time, even the backyard critters and birds know when food is supposed to be there, but do they have a concept of time beyond day and night and the internal clock which says hoard food, put on a thicker coat, a layer of fat?

Time is not always a physical time instrument, such as a clock.
We live in a highly developed area, but there are places where wild animals live around here. The mountain lions come out and roam the streets at dawn and dusk. I respect (and fear) their hunting time and do my running after sun-up and before dusk.
