Many folks are as predictable as clockwork.
They are so dependable that anyone can book ’em and forget ’em because they always show up as agreed and are usually in
good spirits and ready for whatever challenge we might toss
their way. Occasionally these people might display their
humanity by faltering and when they do stumble we
mere mortals must apply real concern not just
because we realize that every clock needs
special care and attention but because
these timepieces chew through the
tension which winds the rest of
us up too tightly. With just
a wee bit of respect and
gratitude they will help
guide us to that place where time stands still and we are the movement.
Thank you, friend.
