Time. Some days it is our friend and sometimes our worst enemy. We want to know it well, for curiosity’s sake, for business & studies and because, for good o for bad we will never see or experience that same moment once it is in the past. And so we are bound to respect it. Ironically, It is both our most precious and valuable commodity, yet it is the one thing that is so freely given to all living things and it will catch us all eventually.

Indeed for as long as time is running away from us, a sundial will always be hot on its heels.
