Tick-tock

Our life with a clock
Tick-tock
Every minute
Tick-tock
Every hour
Tick-tock
Every day
Tick-tock
Always with our clock

Time for this
Tick-tock
Time for that
Tick-tock
Time for work
Tick-tock
Time for bed
Tick-tock
We can never seem to escape the clock

Time everywhere
Tick-tock
Yet we never have enough
Tick-tock
Time the myth
Tick-tock
Perhaps it’s time to stop the clock

What did you notice today?

We’ve been at work, at home, at school, at college, sailing, running, piloting an aircraft…whatever we have been doing today, a simple question, what did you notice?

We are all so often just on autopilot, in our minds, thinking about past or future, planning, thinking about the next thing. Did we actually see anything? or are our daily routines so repetitive that we do not notice anything?

Perhaps it might be worth a moment each day to reflect upon what we saw, learnt, noticed, was there anything new or different. Even better, perhaps we could be more present and notice things in every moment.

Otherwise, each day, week, month, year, and life goes in just a blur of the everyday routines.
