Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right, here I am…
The wheel of time keeps rolling from Alpha to Omega
I wrote “The time between” on the white board because I wanted to remember my note was about lengthening the time between action and reaction and shorten the time between cause and effect. When I wrote this it reminded me of the “time between times”, twilight and dawn. The time just before falling asleep or waking up. The time when our connection with the spirit is strongest.
Let me share with you about my long, dark time of the soul. For many, the year 2020 was exceptionally dark times. Well, it is always darkest just before the dawn, they say. My dark times began a decade ago… 2010 was the year Toshiba told me my service was no longer needed. I had a good 20 years there, and it was not unexpected. I am grateful for my time there and have good friends in Japan and Germany whom I would have never met had it not been for Toshiba. It was a new beginning for me. I didn’t know at the time it was dusk. It was getting dark… not just for me. The economy took a hit around then, which made finding a new job a tad more difficult.
It would be nearly three years before I found my next calling. I was hired by what I was sure to be my final company. Applied Medical was growing exponentially and being in the medical field as the wave of Baby Boomers began to crash on the shores of retirement, showed no signs of slowing down. I was convinced I would have a longer career with this company than I had with Toshiba. I was enjoying my work there so much, I hadn’t noticed the sun had set, and it was dark enough to trip up. Which I did. Unexpectedly.
Denial. I was crushed. How could it be that Applied Medical wasn’t as in love with my service as I was to serve?
Life continues with or without me.
I choose to be with!
I am struggling with time. On the mirrored doors of the closet in the room I use as my office/library, I have started drafting ideas for a story about time.
I should be writing that story. I have four – character types (archetypes?): Chronos, Aeon, Kairos, and Nun. (Clock, frequency, timing, and NOW!) I have a triangle drawn on a post-it on my keyboard… it is a tetrahedron and I have the words Flux Capacitor under it. I made this as a reminder that the flux capacitor from the movie represents moving into/through another dimension… TIME. We are all time travelers… we move toward the future and remember the past always in the now. Now is the prodigal. Now encompasses past and future,
There is a synchronizing beat to it all, and polyrhythmic cycles harmonizing specific points/crescendos. Now is the appointed time! It’s about time to put pen to paper… as I write on toward the story of time.
