Bluebell Books Short Story Slam Week 15/2011

Time is illusion. As one lives one’s life it appears that ofttimes,
time’s too long, too short or neither short enough
or long enough. Time’s a very
malleable thing.
Yet, try
as you
may,
you
can
not
hold
time.
It
accommodates
itself to each one’s
perception. Its perceived absence has varying
impacts on our behavior, as does its perceived abundance.
Taking either for granted also has varying repercussions.

 

A life’s time is the same be it spent crying or singing.

Tears be thee gone!
Me, I definitely prefer song!

      Hello Charlie Parant. Thanks 🙂
      Now then, I do have a question:
      Do your songs make others cry for their content or for their ton/pitch/
      musicality…heh, heh, heh !
      Joke apart, I think I know what you mean/are saying 😀
      Thanks for your visit.
