  17. What life would really be if all thought in terms of last days, but so easily we forget the important things in life.

    Thank you for visitting my blog. I think Jack left enough of his gremlins unsaid... there might be another installment forthcoming, I'll see what I can do.

  18. Kathew,
    You put your finger
    on the pulse; tempus fugit.
    examine each grain.

  23. I always imagined salt or sand in the glass. Sugar keeps turning up here and there. I like that much better.

  25. We forget how precious time is. Seeing the sand as sugar, and the sugar as sweet time, is an interesting touch.

    I would appreciate a follow-up explaining exactly HOW I can do that?

    I know. Too stubborn for too long leaves no hope for the old codgers of the world.

    I think I'm down to two grains of sand left.
