Time flies

Is this yours? It's amazing.

Yes it is! I'm very glad you like it!

I asked only because it was a solid page rather than journal text. Seriously, I love it.

No worries! I did it like that so I could use the excellent old font, which I don't know how to generate in HTML.

It's a good font! It adds to the stateliness.

If they did, then we'd be even more pressed for time! (Like in Michael Ende's Momo, where the grey men smoke people's time.) What we maybe need is time spiders, which could spin us more time.

Please send the ...flock...swarm...spinnering... hmmm, what does one call a group of spiders? "Google? Help, please!" *checks* Ah! Cluster or clutter. Please send a clutter of spiders to my home to give me more time to deal with my own clutter. :P

Edited to fix format.

A clutter of spiders! Gotta love those names for groups of things. Somehow "clutter" makes me think of "clatter," as if gatherings of spiders are always banging the pot lids and setting down the plates noisily.

If I had that power, I'd definitely send time spiders your way (along with an order to be discreet, so as not to alarm any spider-phobic member of your family--if you have anyone who's spider-phobic)

I love this! I especially love that you wrote it. :) Until I saw your reply in the comments, I thought you'd found a wonderful old whimsical piece written by a Great Name Author. It's very well done.

This is what I thought, too, after the first paragraph, and then I thought, hey, wait, Francesca is definitely clever and erudite enough to have invented this. :P

...they gnaw at milliseconds....

And if you get a time fly infestation, you feel *really* rushed.

Until they have nibbled too deep and you lose all momentum, floating, floating....
asakiyume

Yes, and when you're completely, absolutely out of time, you become atemporal--no rush whatsoever. It seems like absolute lack, but I think at that point you break into the opposite infinite: unending presence. Eternity as all-time-forever. All-time and no-time, both, are the opposite of [the passage of] time.

I thought I was reading Einstein.
Then I saw in the comment above that this was you.
I was reading Einstein.

This comparison is very flattering! I think the real Einstein has a less fusty writing style, though :-)

When I examine myself and my methods of thought, I come to the conclusion that the gift of fantasy has meant more to me than my talent for absorbing positive knowledge. Albert Einstein

Love it! You know what's worse than ants at a picnic? Time flies when you're having fun...
asakiyume
Feb. 11th, 2017 01:48 pm (UTC)
Haha! Perfect!! Yes, time flies when you're having fun are definitely undesirable--where *does* the time go?

Although (thinking ahead here), if there was such a thing as time fly repellant...

Makes me think of the name of a comic book store in Cambridge, MA: the The Million Year Picnic. No time flies, so the picnic goes on and on.

I enjoyed this! May I offer, as vaguely germane:
Times fly
Time flies not
Men die
Man dies not.

Oh, and I like the typeface. :)

Yes indeed--that's wonderful; thank you! Four lines that summon up all sorts of thoughts. Good on E. Nesbit! (I'm now recalling your review of the book)

This is delightful and made Brian and I both laugh this morning when I read it to him. We appreciated the typeface as well. :)

I love that you read it out to him--I love reading things out loud! Thank you.

Me too! It's been a pretty integral part of our relationship for a decade-plus now. :)
