  1. Those skating minutes are so seldom acknowledged unless the family cry forces us to stop running and be still. Strange that the most essential things in life, we began to grasp when we realise how short the minute that runs into an hour that runs into a day. Suddenly the value of the minute becomes precious in our site.

    I love this poem. It hammers of a reality we have no control of. the minute.
    Beautifully written.

    • Dear Patricia,

      Thank you for your thoughtful comment. There was a family cry that caused pause and allowed me freedom to bring into being this post — well, that and the precipitation that is preventing me from doing the scheduled labor that awaits me out of doors.

      The paradox of stillness and motion is the challenge that we may parallelize and cobble together — if one hammer wears out we may have to purchase another.

      Thank you again.
