Collection of Time

For months I’ve been looking at sand timers. Pinterest knows, and my feed is filled with them. I discovered quickly that some of the pictures were just pictures of sand timers and not actually for sale.

Today, I walked into a store I’ve not visited before. It looked like a Home Depot for housewares. It was huge and rather overwhelming, but I knew what I was looking for. A curtain rod.

The trick was finding the drapery aisle, so I started walking and reading signs along the way. The direction of the aisle changed and I stood in front of a long row of shelves. My mission for the curtain rod was now on pause as I gazed at all the pretties.

Then, I saw it sitting right in front of me. It was the only one of it’s kind on the shelf. I picked it up to see how it felt in my hand.

It felt lightweight, and delicate.

The sand looks like finely ground gold, and sparkles. That’s my kind of time.

I haven’t ‘collected’ anything specific in a very long time, but I could collect sand timers. What better to collect than a sparkly collection of time.
