Black and White Wednesdays- Counting Minutes

"Clocks slay time, time is dead as long as
 it is being clicked off by little wheels;
 only when the clock stops
 does time come to life."
William Faulkner



My thoughts on spending time-
because it's true
time waits for no one.




(clock handcrafted by my son)


"But what minutes!
Count them by sensation,
and not by calendars,
and each moment is a day!"
Benjamin Disraeli



"We are asleep with compasses in our hands." - W. S. Merwin

So always,
Take time to hear the music.





-and feel it flow through your fingers.



Always,
keep your memories from timing out.


"What you remember saves you." - W.S. Merwin




"We travel far and fast, and as we pass through we forget,
where we have been." - W.S. Merwin





Time well spent.



Gifts are nice
but it's time we spend together 
that we remember most.

Hi Karen, what a wonderful post in black and white. Your pics are all inspirational and I love the last one
especially. It reminds me of my hubby and son when he was little fishing.
Have a great weekend,
Hugs, CM
