I have a clock that belonged to my uncle. It no longer keeps time, but it is pretty, and I keep it in a place of honor in memory of him.
I found myself looking at the clock often, as I have for years, to check the time. It was making me crazy. I have other clocks to refer to, but that one always caught my eye….so I opened the glass door at the front and put a picture there, over the clock face.
I chose a picture that was the right size and shape. It is a simple, muted abstract, not my usual style, with some words: “Love without remorse.”
I need the reminder to be “all in.” That broken clock has a purpose again.
