Timepieces



We all do it. We steal glances at clocks and watches and cell phones.
We search for them in public spaces, or ask strangers at bus stops.
Clocks that used to grace towers or buildings are sometimes silent and unmoving as the public came to have their own private timepieces.
Watches have become more and more like pieces of jewellery in this day of checking our phones for the time.
I love my collection of timepieces
with it's array of clock faces and digital numbers.
Some are silent, some tick resonantly. One chimes.
Some need to be plugged in, some need to be wound up.
All tell a story... once upon a time.
