Time’s Up for Father Time!
We are here to make light of a figment of imagination that spoils sport, kills joy and poops parties.
“Time is an illusion.” –Albert Einstein.
Said figment is, like the contents of an hourglass, a metaphor.
“Love is like an hourglass, with the heart filling up as the brain empties.” –Jules Renard
Not to say an hourglass figure is just a figure of speech, but temporal illusions are just that.
“We say that time passes, time goes by, and time flows. Those are metaphors. We also think of time as a medium in which we exist.” –James Gleick
Anyone who thinks they are, because they think, could not go a day without metaphors.
“The drive toward the creation of metaphors is the fundamental human drive, which one cannot for a single instant dispense with in thought, for one would thereby dispense with man himself.” –Friedrich Nietzsche
So the metaphors thinkers choose to live by are vital, literally, to one’s sense of humor.
“Clock watchers never seem to be having a good time.” –James Cash Penney
To find the timeless treasures that temporal illusions hide, we heave Father Time off the boat we are in, and take humor’s way to life’s sweet spot, where hindsight and foresight meet insight.
“Humor is the affectionate communication of insight.” –Leo Rosten
Aboard the metaphoric salvage vessel-cum-party boat, Laughsaver, the treasures one finds are to laugh, to love, and to live for.
“A happy man does not hear the clock strike.” –Proverb
