Hands of Time

Time was passing like a hand waving from a train I wanted to be on.

Hand of Time

I come across a familiar smell, place or song on the radio, and I instantly feel comforted by days gone by. I am transported back in time to childhood, when my world was just a few streets wide, when my main concern was running out of daylight before making it home for dinner. They were the times before I had to worry about other things running out like time, luck or money. Yes, even just for a moment, life is simple again. I catch myself missing certain aspects of not only my childhood, but the days before we became so interconnected and complicated. Sometimes, I feel better just by putting on a song like "Jezebel" by Frankie Laine from 1951. Nostalgia is like a security blanket. The “good old days” were a simpler time that allowed for a simpler life and, therefore, a simpler “us.” And sometimes, I really believe we were simply happier back in the good old days.

“Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls.”

Jeremiah 6:16 (KJV)
