When you blog, you never know what surprises will be waiting in your inbox. This morning I found a like and follow from Tyler Pedersen, a poet with a blog called The Ancient Eavesdropper. He writes short poems about nature that he refers to as “Nature’s nuances in a nutshell”.
His work is rightfully copyrighted but he allows excerpts — unfortunately this poem about time is too short for me to excerpt from it and too perfect not to share here on a blog about the nature of time. Please enjoy, knowing that it is all his (see copyright info at end), and then check it out in its original format along with the rest of the fine work on his blog.
They say time will tell – as if a clock could see past its nose – two hands waving me through life – 11,270 days 270,483 hours 16,229,038 minutes 973,742,337 seconds – but I am more than a string of numbers.
Also, please take a second to like the facebook page for Blessed are the Weird, to thank Jacob Nordby for the accompanying thoughts on the poster to the below.
The last few weeks have flown by with the publishing of my fourth book c3, and I have been overwhelmed with the demands of trying to get this latest book the attention and publicity it needs for a successful launch. Should I do blog tours? How many? With who? I’ll use my free kindle days. How best to publicize them? How much dare I spend?
Blogging, normally something fun I do to relax, has become a chore to tired hands and even tireder eyes. I need at least twenty-six hours in day. Maybe thirty right now.
However, I’ve been through this before and I know that it will pass. My frantic response to a new book will subside, and what will be will be. I’ll be back here soon posting about confederate flags and puzzles and the nature of time and hope for the future. I’ll have enough time to take my time, and enjoy the journey.
Please will check out this new creation of mine, c3, available on kindle here. Please like the Facebook page Growing Bolder. The image above came from them.
