Real Time, No Saving

We’ve stopped, at least for a while, tinkering with the natural order, relinquishing control of the passage of time back where it belongs, to the sun and the planets and the universe at large.  For a brief period, beginning today, … Continue reading

Seeing…actually seeing…time

The last three days, during which I have had extremely limited access to the internet, have made my decision to forego Facebook an easier task.  I haven’t been able to peer and post without wi-fi or cell service. But I … Continue reading
