You never know where a bit of thought and meditation might take you. This time it took me on a walk through 'time'.
Using the door symbol I thought about walking through it, either inside or out, just as we walk through time all of our lives.
Numbers can rule our lives -- and if not rule them they certainly play an important place in our everyday activities. I've come to think of time and numbers as a tool we've used to enhance civilization. When there are large numbers of us we must have some way to control it all -- thus we keep time and we count the days.
As for me -- my studio work often takes me away from time. For a bit of each day I am lost in ideas, thread, fabric and color and I treasure each moment (while not counting it).
"What then is time? If no one asks me, I know what it is. If I wish to explain it to him who asks, I do not know." - Saint Augustine
