Time, you’re politically conservative,
moving the reverse of NASCAR,
all right hand turns,
and no lefts.
And Time, you’re
You’re stuck in a rut.
Now think, Time, if you were freed from my clock,
not chained to my night stand as a home for my Ipod dock,
what marvelous change you could make.
Yeah! You could make a break,
pull up stakes
and wave your hands in the face of convention.
Sleep on what I’ve said, Time.
Don’t be alarmed if I wake up before you do tomorrow.

The human mind is wound up in the ticking of clocks. But time is an illusion of the imagination and music proves it by altering time, time after time. Listen! 4/4 time, shifting to 3/4 time, compounded into 6/8 time….and time even can hold on a little longer to let a fermata pass by. We cannot blame our chains on time! 😉
Right on, Mary! Power to the time bandits!
