ONCE UPON A

Sometimes you want it to fly.
Other times, you want it to stand still.
Sometimes it goes by in the blink of an eye.
Other times, it seems to drag, like carrying a load up a hill.
Yet, it never changes.
It is a constant.
It is always there, ever ever moving.

Sounds like a “who is it” riddle, right?
If you haven’t figured by now, I am referring to time.

The concept of time has mystified the masses and invoked much music. ♫
Many songs have been written about time. Here’s some of my favorites:

Time after time. (If you fall I will catch you … I will be waiting.)
Time in a bottle. (But there never seems to be enough time …)
Time keeps on slippin slippin slippin into the future. (Fly like an eagle to the sea.)
Does anybody really know what time it is? (Does anybody really care?)
Time waits for no one and he won’t wait for me. (No favors has he.)
Time has come today. (Which has a rock and roll classic “yeeeeah” at the end.)
Time is on my side. (Yes it is.)
It’s the time of the season for loving. (Who’s your daddy?)
I hope you had the time of your life (Which is a parenthetical title for Good Riddance.)
TiK ToK (On the clock but the party don’t stop, no. Oh whoa whoa Oh.)
Anything by Morris Day and the Time should count too. Wait, maybe not.

Time is money. I looked it up and was not totally unsurprised it is a quote from Benjamin Franklin in Advice to a Young Tradesman, Written by an Old One.

Heck, my font for the draft is Times New Roman.

Someone named a whole news magazine called simply, TIME.

There is a character named Father Time with a grey beard carrying an hour glass we see from time to time around New Years Eve. Not sure who Mother Time is but sometimes time CAN be a mother.

I am punctionally challenged and that all goes back to time. If there was no time I would never be late.

Down time. Up time. Every time. All the time.

There’s more I could say, but I’m running out of time. But I leave you with one thought, never wish away time in your life, because time is too short.

AUTHOR’S NOTE: The band name was intentionally omitted from the Wedwand Top Ten Time Tunes. If it drives you crazy, let me know and I will share the artist with you. (If I have the time) ☺
