January 10, 2021 – Day 10

The Basis of Time

‘Time exists to keep everything from happening at once’, at least that’s one of the old adages I’d read, and it made sense, but the way we measure time is based on the relationship between our planet and our sun.

Today’s Prompt: What is an hour?

Just your average writer- which is to say, I have a full-time job developing and testing software.

  1. What is an hour?

    1/692,040 of our lives
    1/8,760 of a year
    1/24 of a day
    1 hour
    60 Minutes
    3,600 seconds

    What is an hour?
    Depends on who you ask…

    An hour in the dentist’s chair or one in a lawn chair…
    Courtside seats at your trial or courtside seats the NBA finals
    One hour left to study or one hour left to complete the exam
    The first hour of a road trip or the last
    An hour waiting for a child to be born or the one with a parent about to pass
    The wait to be seated versus the dinner with friends
    An hour reading a novel or an hour reading medical report
    Waking up an hour early or an hour late
    An hour alone or an hour separated from those you love
    An hour waiting for help or the hour it takes to get there to help
    An hour from home or home’s an hour away
    An hour long meeting or an hour long conversation
    An hour long goodbye or an hour long hello

    In the end, the hour is what we make of it…because no of us are promised more than the hour we are in.

    Make the hour you have the best hour you can, by being the best you that you can…
