Time has a value different from
other portions in life; once gone,
it cannot be regained. While the
statement is simple, the concept
seems as difficult to grasp as
mortality. We live as if both
time and death were abstract.
We value relationships, tangible
items, roles we play in careers.
‘Next time’ is a catch-phrase often
elevating a disappointment. Time-
zones, daylight/standard, Greenwich
Mean setting universal clocks,
birthdays, affixed rituals create
memories or markings but mentally
there is always more, just waiting to
be used. While alive, there’s no
way to comprehend it is temporary.
