Time’s Up for Father Time!



We are here to make light of a metaphor that spoils sport, kills joy and poops parties.

“The more sand has escaped from the hourglass of our life, the clearer we should see through it.” –Niccolo Machiavelli

Not to say an hourglass figure is just a figure of speech, but temporal illusions are.

“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

We who think we are, because we 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 we choose to live by are vital, literally, to our sense of humor.

“Clock watchers never seem to be having a good time.” –James Cash Penney

To discover the timeless treasures that temporal illusions hide, we heave Father Time off the boat we are in—no worries, it is water-resistant to 2000 fathoms–on humor’s way to life’s sweet spot, where hindsight and foresight meet insight.

“A happy man does not hear the clock strike.” –German Proverb 

Aboard our metaphoric treasure craft, Laughsaver, what we find is to laugh, to love, and to live for.

“Love is like an hourglass, with the heart filling up as the brain empties.” –Jules Renard
