What a profound statement!
We cannot forget death's long arms.
It's true there is no time table for death. sandie
...most precious possesion...so so true!
Yes, it's very true!
You can even see death's fingerprint on that timepiece.
HelenThat touched me on a personal level -- I still feel my mothers hand held tightly to mine till she was gone from sight -- but not from my heart.Alzheimer's can be a cruel - and a very forgiving illness.Joanny
This was profound & this Magpie took me to a similar place. The passage of time...of every hour lived is one hour closer to the final hour. But it is the time in between that counts the most!Joanny Alzheimer's is a cruel & insidious disease. I am sorry that your mother was taken from you in this way. My thoughts are with you!
... is timeless, in fact!
How true! Here's my Magpie Tale
Time, it really is all we have, and then again, we don't have much time at all, do we? Very thought provoking Magpie, nicely done.

So true...no matter what we do, this is one thing that we have no real control over!! Potions, creams, medicines, living green - when all is said and done, it's not really up to us.
Scarily profound and honest; sort of gives you a shock. Nicely done.

The Grim Reaper never takes a holiday.
