Tick, tock. Tick, tock…

Barrie wrote the croc as a she. Hmm…
" I suppose it's like the ticking crocodile, isn't it? Time is chasing after us all."
J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan

There. It is official. Standard time arrived at 4:59 am. Digital clocks corrected.

The Project wakes me,  roaring with to-dos. Tea, and stream of conscious listing. The ten day countdown begins tomorrow. Posters, postcards, pr, labels, signage, reception, installation, lighting, bodies - need bodies.

Other life: cat asks for breakfast - she doesn't care what time it is. The bowl is empty. Dishes away. Tea is hot.

Back to roaring lists. Writing smooths it out. Schedule bills now - can't think about them later and won't give them the satisfaction of a late charge just because Life is going pretty fast this month. Ads for now, ads for later, calendar - finish-order, print more posters, exhibit design, list participants, backers, history, future.

Oh yes, laundry.

Standard time gave me an extra hour today as ephemeral as autumn. It is evaporating with the steam of the tea. To work.


  1. stream of consciousness rocks. i like the time change. you'll look back on this years later and wonder how you made it all work. not many people have crown achievements in their lives.

    1. I look back twenty-five years ago to canning a couple of bushels of tomatoes, a bushel of cukes into pickles and relish, 10 quarts of strawberries into jam, Chickens from chick to freezer and work and have a family and I wonder how I did it. Prep I guess. And desire to see it through. Focus on one thing at a time. Thanks Karen.
