I think it was Journey that wrote and produced Wheel in the Sky, which I think is a tribute to the cosmos and its movements, hence the wheel, and its use by man as a clock, maybe? And maybe that is a little deep for the members of Journey, which for all I know simply liked the way the words sounded when sang to the music they had "in their heads."
But for me it has always stood for the clock in the cosmos thing. I mention this because time can move along at its normal rate, which it always does regardless, and seem to stand still to the casual observer. I mention this twist because I am anxious to get something done for a particular reason I'll not go into here, and though I look at the clock and the second hand is moving along like it should, time is standing still for me.
Isn't it always that way? I can't seem to get done the things I need to get done, mainly because the timing here is important. As I lean ever more forward to the point where it will all slide down hill and, maybe quicker than I can handle, for me time seems to move ever more slowly.
In the context of this post, there are a few constants in the universe I would like to mention. The Wheel in the Sky will keep on turning, the stars will always amaze me, and so does the one I love.
