365 Project - Day 32 - "Time"



February 01, 2011 - "Time"

Tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick...

I have a pocket watch that I bought almost 20 years ago from a Russian vendor at a flea market. It has the Russian Imperial Crest on the lid... and an image of St. George slaying the dragon on the reverse...

... and it ticks...

Tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick...

... so I keep it on my nightstand so I can hear it throughout the night...

Tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick...

... I find it comforting..

... to hear time pass like that...

Tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick-tick...

When I visit my mom I get to hear ticking. :) I also get to hear chimes … every fifteen minutes. I grew up with that. Actually, when I visit mom I reset the chimers if they need it, and wind *only* the on-the-hour chimes.
