Hands Of Time

One of those cool multi-faced clocks that tells the time in different places around the world. The clock is in Singapore but this dial gives Vancouver time.

Love the concept of world time zones – while  I am posting on my blog you may be asleep, and vice versa!

Or, on the longer time scale  – some are living life to the full, while others are about to pass away.

I was driving around town yesterday and a song popped up on my Ipod’ s random play.

“Hands Of Time” by the criminally underrated Canadian singer-songwriter Ron Sexsmith . Great, gorgeous and wise song and rendition , but not sure that he actually wrote it.

Some reflective lyrics from it:

” From the moment we are born

We’re in the hands of time

As drunk on life as death is sober

When we say goodbye

 

Though it hurts to lose a friend

May it help remembering

For every door that closes in

One’ll open to the other side

Opened by the hands of time “

Those words speak deeply to me of time, the ultimate healer and changer.

Okay, time to go…
