The sounds of time have been all around us . The ticking of the clocks and bells ringing to mark the portions of each hour. Now the sounds tend to be silenced . Watches and clocks no longer tick in the same way as they used to . The grandfather clock no longer stands in the modern home, no longer chimes , no pendulums swinging from side to side marking time.
But there is one sound of time that will not change and we do not want to silence . The beating of the heart. Each beat takes us closer to the end of our days. Each skipped beat, those beats that rush and hammer, all are a reminder of what is to come. The stopping of that sound.
