Somtimes, Time rushes by incredibly fast!
At other times, it seems to go round in circles …
… or just stand still.
We do our best to measure it
and keep it
and preserve it
It keeps slipping away from us when we don’t notice
… and we’ll probably never quite understand it.
♫ Can you imagine us years from today,
sharing a parkbench quietly
How terribly strange to be seventy
Old friends, memory brushes the same years,
silently sharing the same fears ♫
(Simon & Garfunkel: Old Friends)
“Time it was, and what a time it was, it was
A time of innocence, a time of confidences
Long ago, it must be, I have a photograph
Preserve your memories, they're all that's left you.”
(Simon & Garfunkel: Bookends)
*Most of the photos are from the Open Air Museum in my town.*
