One More Hour

Processed Photo by Ronald

Last Saturday, just like every year, the time clock has been set, one hour earlier to take advantage of the daylight saving time. And I wondered: "What would it have been if instead of just moving the time one hour earlier, we were given the chance to go back an hour in the past, what would we have changed had we been given that opportunity?" I certainly would have done a lot more than what I am capable of doing in a normal hour of time. I would have done something more important instead, or would have done things differently.

One more hour, it seems so short and yet so long depending on what we are doing at the time. If we were having a good time, catching up with a deadline, or simply taking a nap, an hour will seem insufficient. However, if we were waiting for a snail to cross the street, waiting for the results of an exam, or waiting for a baby to be borne, an hour will seem eternal.

One  hour more,  or one last hour to "judgement day",  it is a matter of perspective, it is our
our own perception of our hour glass.


  1. I never knew that a simple snail can look so beautiful. As they say, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, or in this case, if we dont like what we see, we change it. Nice job, Ron!

  2. But it was me who took the picture, huh? ;)

  3. Oh, I did not know that, congratulations Beatriz, nice shot! Perfect teamwork.
