Many thanks to my friend Larry for giving me this clock for my Clock Wall. Everything about the clock is backwards. I’m hopeful that this clock will make me feel like time can go backwards, because another decadal birthday is only months away. What is it about a birthday that ends in a zero? Why does it seem so much bigger than the last nine birthdays?
This is my Arizona Clock Wall. If you look carefully, you’ll see which clocks need new batteries!
If you are a person who doesn’t like to listen to a clock ticking, you wouldn’t enjoy being near this bunch of ‘tickers’. They say tick-tock over and over again, but they don’t say it in unison. The aggregate sound is more like tick-tick-tock-tick-tock-tock-tick etc…
If my mind is not too intently engaged in what I am doing, soon the rhythm of the clocks will speak to me. “Want-cho-co-late want-cho-co-late want-cho-co-late”. “Sun-is-shin-ing sun-is-shin-ing.” “Go-to-bed go-to-bed”… I won’t tell you what the clocks say about politics.
The Car Guy doesn’t mind hearing the ticking of the clocks, but they don’t speak to him. Perhaps clocks choose who they will talk to…
How about you? Do you have clocks that tick? Do they speak to you?
