Try to imagine a life without time keeping
Have you ever stopped for a moment and taken the time to think about time as a concept? Our entire existence is shaped around time. More time, less time, time to go, time of arrival, time well spent, time running out… What if time was something we simply never placed importance on? This editorial is inspired by one of my favourite books The Time Keeper by Mitch Albom in partnership with Rosefield Watches. When I opened the first page of the book and read the paragraph below the words hit me like a metric tonne of bricks…
“Try to imagine a life without timekeeping. You probably can’t. You know the month, the year, the day of the week. There is a clock on your wall or the dashboard of your car. You have a schedule, a calendar, a time for dinner or a movie. Yet all around you, timekeeping is ignored. Birds are not late. A dog does not check its watch. Deer do not fret over passing birthdays. Man alone measures time. Man alone chimes the hour. And, because of this, man alone suffers a paralyzing fear that no other creature endures. A fear of time running out.” – The Time Keeper by Mitch Albom.
