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 drags, like hauling a load up a hill.

Yet, it never changes. It is a constant. And at the end, you always want it.

It is always there, ever moving, ever moving.

If you haven’t figured by now, I am referring to time.

We “sprung forward” here last night setting our clocks ahead ONE hour for something called Daylight Savings Time. When you get right down to it, there is no actual “daylight savings.”  The sun just rises later, then likewise sets later, so in reality, we are not actually “saving” any daylight, just displacing the time when the sun sets.

The concept of time has mystified the masses and inspired 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. O E O E O.

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.

There’s a whole news magazine called simply, TIME.

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

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.

So September begins which signifies that summer has once again not so slowly slipped away. Where did it go, that summer we so looked forward to after the brutal winter that preceded it?

Ah, there were some good times, a concert or four in the park, a trip to the beach, a baseball game, a wedding, a blockbuster movie, a road trip, and poof, it’s gone.

I’ve always had this time thing. Why are we in the moment we’re in when we’re in it? How we just missed a moment, but it was a good thing. How another time we were in the moment and it was bad thing and we were there. What we did when we were faced with the challenge of the bad moment. How it could have been different. How it was good but it wasn’t different.

Often times we hear people say:

“I can’t wait until Friday.”
“Boy this has been a long day, I wish it was over.”
“I want tomorrow to come.” Even Annie loves ya, tomorrow. It’s only a day away.

Got me to thinking about how we should cherish each moment of the day and not wish away time.

On occasion you get this one day that you wished would never end. But it does. And you hope you sufficiently captured the moment!

Then there’s this other day that seemed like it would never end and it was horrible, but you got through it and were stronger for it.

Where does the time go? Where did the time go? Where will the time go? What will you do with your time? Will you wish it away?

Because at the end, we all wish we had more time.

Wedwand waxed philosophical for a second there.

But by golly it’s September! (I try to keep this site clean and wanted to say GOD DAMN it’s September, but refrained. Or maybe I didn’t, woops.)

So to lighten it up (as opposed to tighten it up… thank you Archie Bell and the Drells from Houston, Texas) Wedwand has a September song quiz for you.
