Thinking of Time

Tonight I am thinking of the upcoming weekend and the time change, so my mind has wandered to clocks, watches and other indications of time.

Big Ben - Elizabeth Tower - Clock Tower - Most Photographed Clock - London, England - Iconic ClockClocks of course help us keep time and sometimes they are highly visible like this one. I am sure many of you know where this one is as it is one of the most photographed clocks in the world.

Calendars.com, 2019 calendars, New YearOf course calendars also help us keep track of time, but at a slower pace.

Tiglath Pileser III - British Museum - Pul - First watch?Of course, sometimes we carry a timepiece with us by wearing a watch. Oh wait, this is not a watch, but it sure looks like one. See: Assyrian Watch

Sundial Surface, Topkapi Sarayi Museum, Istanbul, Turkey, Time ChangeAnother way of telling time is with a sundial. Are you glad that you don’t have to worry about Syncing your Sundial to the time change?

The Time Thief, The Gideon Trilogy, Linda Buckley-ArcherI am also thinking about a series of books that I read called The Gideon Trilogy.

The second book, The Time Thief, makes me think of Sunday when an hour will be slolen from us.

Next week will be interesting as I adjust to the time difference between those countries who do not change at the same time as we do. I am thinking of an upcoming conference call and wonder if it the time change was taken into account in the scheduling. I will have to remember to check.
