Who invented time?
I mean, really…
before there were calendars and watches
and birthdays and scheduling apps and
who decided we need to slice and dice our days and
months and years into the confines of linear numbers?
The planets and suns and moons
run circles around one another on a fairly regular basis.
They do not, however, march on like time.
Circles, cycles, ellipses, eclipses…
It is humans, not nature, who love to be linear.
We wait in lines to catch the bus, because buses must run on time.
We meet deadlines to stay timely,
read headlines to keep up with the times,
string power lines to serve the demands of modern times,
post bylines, because it’s about time we got credit for our work.
There’s no time like the present.
Time is on our side.
Time stands still for no one.
What would happen if we all became timeless?
I guess only time would tell.
