Timepieces, " Motioning The Void "

" Time is of Essence " -

An essence that fills the void which surrounds us.

We are all represented by a timepiece, an instrument that carries the substance of time.

Some are crafted with beauty; an inner sense of confidence, while some gifted with unique abilities.

Everyone, you and me, has to start from somewhere. A synthetic rubber stripe or a leather, eventually moving up to a glint of gold, judged merely by a different price tag.

Each day our lives tick away, as the pin motions itself towards the hours, minutes, and even seconds. Every composition of life; when spun repeatedly, creates a humdrum existence which many will eventually take for granted.

Have you thought about the past, filled with regrets that you tried so much to rewind but never worked? Or have you brought forth the lessons of life, ready to be challenged by each new tick?

Remember, everything that we have marked, and every decision that we made, greatly affects each one of us in one way or another in its own time. We are after all, the linchpin of time that motions the void we all believed in.

Mine was dented and cracked over the years, but it is still ticking.

What about yours?



With that, and a pat on the pod;

Very well said...
The only problem with watches is when you insert the batteries, it will always go forth and not backwards.
Life is the same no matter what you do and how powerful you are, you still need to look ahead and not the past.
Let's all move towards a better future.
Pssttt, mine is old and dirty, cheap too, never liked gold
:P

I used to love watches....I would spent basically all my money into buying watches and every birthdays or christmas, somebody will give me a watch...

Am fraid that obsession has died off...I'm into papers now

Selba said...

Mr. Goober said...

well zeroimpact..no battery, no life. want life? then accept the challenges. That's how it ticks.

papercrazy, um..okay maybe next time i'll write about "paper pieces : killing the trees"

Kenny Ng said...

Fuahhh... so many watches. I seldom buy watch, can count how many watches I bought before with my 5 fingers in my life.

Mr. Goober said...

okay chen :)

same too kenny..as long as can read, no need to buy another one i guess ;)

_butt said...

mine.. *jogging memory* can't rmb when was the last time I wear a watch.. which probably explains my poor time management sometimes.. *haha*

I'd always think that people who wear watches are always on time and punctual.. LOL

Uncle Lim said...

One of my favorite quotes of all time. It pratically drives me forward each day. :)

Mr. Goober said...

okay butt, if you've met me then you would've said otherwise :))) i've always been late though i wear a watch.

yes lim, if one's prepared all the time, then let it tick away with no fear!

Uncle Lim said...

Your late because of other factors la my fren...

Anyway, great photo shot.. i like it.

I just got this from Clarence for my b'day :

http://www.tissot.ch/?mod_collection/colid_0004/famid_0019/subid_0035/refid_T02_1_181_51/action_select

I can't wear leather watches... i get the rashes :P so we opted for steel :P my baby g is still with me though :)

Mr. Goober said...

lol unclelim, thanks. i actually gave it some cosmetic :))))

oh hey mistique, long time no see~! that watch looks like a sports watch...groovy

Mystique said...

The Baby G my aunt got me is supposed to be sporty... the Tissot is more of a classic watch... but i opted for a different shape... square :P ... I wanted something with a 3rd hand and date... :p at least this one isn't huge like some others i've seen (ladies watches...)

Mr. Goober said...

okay mystique, well as long as it doesn't give allergies it's unique enough..muahaha.
