Time by catch---22 Time by catch---22
Time, why you punish me?
Like a wave bashing into the shore
You wash away my dreams.

Time, why you walk away?
Like a friend with somewhere to go
You left me crying.

Can you teach me about tommorrow
And all the pain and sorrow
Running free?

Cause tomorrow's just another day
And I don't believe in time...


www.youtube.com/watch?v=oFLyso… hootie and the blowfish - time

Time, something I've been short on of late... but today I had time to get bored and try an idea I've had for a while. I kind of like how it came out but then again I am partial to the models... two war torn veterans of the past century, my great grandfather's poor old watch, which no matter how many times I get it fixed, its arm falls off and a dear friend that bears the marks of 100 plus years of, grannies and church ladies with large rings... children of more than a few generations reaching up to pop the little piece of ivory right off the key with a squeal of delight... and even me, a drink by my side, pounding away while switching randomly between moonlight sonata and the theme from the pink panther... it's a trooper is it. Time does seem to leave its marks I suppose some are scars but most can only be viewed as badges of honor. (side lit with a candle)

... and speaking of time. it's time to go see the deviations you've posted and clear out my message center. :peace:

I'm keeping time to this.. here Dennis deftly juxtaposes the capture of a moment in the continuum of life's song, knowing full well that every sweet rapture must end for the new songs to begin again. Time, time
Time, see what's become of me
While I looked around for my possibilities . . .

We were all .. so hard to please
Look around
Leaves are brown
Seasons change with the scenery
Weaving time in a tapestry
Won't you stop and remember me
At any convenient time?

Funny how my memory skips
Looking over manuscripts
Of unpublished rhyme

Carry your cup in your hand
And look around
Leaves are brown
And the sky is

a hazy
shade of

winter

A beautiful picture! Time is such a mysterious and also cruel matter. For example, others are granted with plenty of years to live, but last Friday I was at my sister's baby's funeral instead of enjoying the start of a weekend.

oh I shall forever equate it with a summer trip to a college chum's hometown. I had never seen anyone drink beer like these Kansans. One of my bud's brothers was laying down with his head next to a speaker as this song came on... really loud. he never even moved. after checking to see if he was actually alive, we were impressed.

. . I can relate to this story - many moons ago - I used to put two large 12" speaker cabinets on the floor
 - lay down between them - and listen to Dark Side of The Moon .
For some reason I didn't really get much hearing damage from those days :) :thumbsup:

This is very beautiful, I love the contrast between the shine of the pocketwatch and the worn appearance of the keys. I'm partial to piano shots, being a pianist hopelessly engaged in a romance with my instrument, and the subtle details within this piece really make the shot intriguing to look at.

This is beautiful! Um, are you a writer? Your descriptions of your photos are always so poetic. What a beautiful story. Time...this is something that I ponder often. It is what keeps me grounded. I know that looking too far forward blinds me to my past and looking too far back blinds me to my future. Being in the moment is not easy. Time...it always slips away like sand through our fingers. Your work is beautiful.

And when the morning of the warning's passed, the gassed
And flaccid kids are flung across the stars
The psychodramas and the traumas gone
The songs are left unsung and hung upon the scars

And does she want to see the stains, the dead remains of all the pains
She left the night before
Or will their waking eyes reflect the lies, and make them
Realize their urgent cry for sight no more

And then along comes Mary
