Will Our Lives Be Lost In Time ~ like tears in the rain?

“Life … A Masterpiece from the Palette of the Universe”

Life …

…We are the recipients!

And…we need reminded of this!

I saw a movie once, a favorite – “Blade Runner”, (a Science fiction thriller, dark and forboding) – the future. There is a scene at the end of the movie where one of the characters says words that are so piercingly moving and true that I’ve never forgotten them.

“Life lost  in time – is like tears in the rain”

The video below “reminds” us of life – it’s beauty and it’s value. You can hear the words (from the movie’s scene) in the background. Please, please watch (just a few minutes) listen to the words, see the beauty and

… be reminded!

Music from Vangelis – “Tears in the Rain” and spoken words both from the movie “Blade Runner”. This gorgeous video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pql82_hMBxY was created by Antoss1, he was inspired after watching the same scene of which I spoke.

WE are life’s recipients …

WE hold the future in our hands …

WE need to remind and be reminded … Again and again until we (all of us) understand!

All the tomorrow’s that will ever be are being created even as I write this.

We are the ones deciding what life will be in our futures. Our choices … the choices … have never been more important than they are today.

*

Consider this as you go about your day’s routine today. What is really important to you in life? What really matters? These are things to ponder and weigh in your heart of hearts.

We hold the future in our hands…”We hold the future in our hands“!

We, The Recipients of Life

We hold the future “their futures” … in our hands!

 

Thank you for stopping by, may your day be blessed with happiness and positive thoughts for the future my friends,

Alastairs Photo Fiction: No time

Before we had clocks, we used the sun to monitor the passing of time during daylight hours. Makes sense! Depending on the time of day the sun is in a different place. Something to track. Same thing with nighttime hours, when the sky was clear. We kept track of time based on where the moon was in the sky. The thing here is – at some point in the evolution of our keeping track of time, we lost time.

We lost the valuable time being spent in close, interactive relationships with each other and nature. (So my story today has to do with the time of it all).

Vignettes of “No time”

~

“Daddy, would you help me fix my bicycle tire, it’s still flat and you said you’d fix it a few weeks ago?”

“Not right now son, I’ll take care of it but I have no time today, maybe tomorrow!”

*

“Mommy, can I help you cook dinner? I’d like to help you!”

“I’m sorry honey, mommy has too many things to do today, I just don’t have the time to show you what to do right now.”

*

“Hi John, can you come over and play in the yard with me?”

“I don’t have time right now, there’s a cool show on TV and after that I have a new video game I’m going to try.”

*

“Hi Janice, this is mom. I was wondering if you have time today to stop by and visit your dad and me at the retirement center. We’ve been missing you and the little ones. It’s been awhile.”

“Hi Mom! You know how much we all love you, and we’d love to be able to come visit, but there’s so many things going on right now.”

“That’s what you said a few weeks ago Janice, perhaps you have a little spare time on Sunday?”

“Mom, don’t go there. Don’t make me feel guilty. I have too many things on my plate, There is just no time right now. Sunday I’m just going to stay home and chill, but we love you and will be out to visit when we have more time.”

*

“Hello Henry I’m leaving this message on your answering machine. I was told you called in sick today. I hope it’s nothing serious. Remember we have a deadline on the project your working on. We really don’t have time for you not to be here. I hope you get better soon.”
