stops along the journey
Oh no! The last tick didn't make it. Code Blue! Code Blue! Defibrillator Stat!
the old pocket watches are coming back mate, like most things do, loved this little quirky post, and you are right dude, just like life...
Oh yes just like life. Sometimes I wish life could just stop and stand still for awhile. :)
132 very thought provoking characters. Loved it. Cheers...
I have to ask...why 160? Because that was the restriction on database entries at one time?
I used to like those pocket watches. I like that you bring up the wound so tight aspect in life.
sounds like a bomb about to go off...tick tick tick.
Hey I have a pocket watch! Okay so it's battery fed...and still doesn't keep time! But I can get pretty wound up, meself :(
Very creative 160, Brian! I think there are alot of us who are feeling this way right about now.My 160 is up, as well.
The ole ticker didn't make it. Hard lesson learned...Good one!
very thought provoking. I like the ticks
Many days I feel I'm suffering from being wound too tight!
I have my great grandfather's pocket watch... it's the oldest thing we own.
Brian,I have I mentioned your writing is brilliant? How do you do this as often as you do? Love the end. Perfect for the task, and who would have known if they didn't know you were limiting characters? Bravo!
hot damn, you're right!?!?!?!
I must count the characters sometime, Brian, make sure you're not cheating. This little piece was inspirational.
Boy me too smiles4u...just stop and let us all catch our breath before the next round of ticks!!Great 160 words Brian.ThanksHugsSueAnn
Being wound too tight can make the old ticker stop for sure!
i have an old railroad pocket watch that has sprung, sits on the bed side table to remind me...very nice etching on it. happy weekend all!
Ticking clock seem to cleverly wind their way into writing. Nicely done. I was late with my own 160and you can find out why by reading it.
Ooooh! I love this! Nicely done, Brian! :)
Boy, this can keep you awake for hours.
its perfect the you "ran out" of characters. Must try this some day
BOOM! (yep..describes my anxiety state when I was younger..24/7..I'm better now !)Namaste
sounds like fun too..and true
I think I have one somewhere, my Grandad always had one in braille.
tick tick tick....splashand then the snow ball bomb explodes. I've thrown one for you on my blog as you suggested :)
I wish I could make time stop... Just until I'm caught up. Seems the days are not long enough and time keeps ticking away.Nice 160, Brian!
Wow, I will make sure I keep the clock wound...!
You are great with these Brian, but I still miss the pocket watch and fob........:-) Hugs
Sometimes I feel like that....
I tried to use less words.... really, I did. It is just not in me! I bow to you, Word Master!!
Heehee, I know some people that are wound too tight!
So MANY things are ruined from being wound too tight, don't you think?
Sometimes I wish we could just run the clocks backward and unwind.
you are so good at this! I might have to try...
ronda, i know exactly what you are saying...
It is the way with life. Is there any way to slow it down?Love this 160. You always create such a visual!
It also seems that the older you get, the faster the clock ticks rattle off and the louder they become.
Oh, this is good... Real good.
Brian, you are too clever for words. Wonderful again.
Just great. Yet one more reminder that time is going by too quickly, that time is running out on us all, every day. Sheesh, well writte, too well written. Now my blood pressure went up. Good work!
Great job. I have two old pocket watches that wind up. I wear them all the time. Have a great week.jj
I want a pocket watch...but I also want a Porche. Hmmm, tough one.
I date a pocket watch man. Nothing can survive a week on his wrist before tragedy befalls it.
and such is life :Dbtw, i have an old pocket watch.. used to belong to my Granpa :)
Ah yes, the fleeting time, the only constant in life, so precious and so very relative...Great and poignant as always, you are the king of words.;)xoZuzana
I know very few who own watches these days, let alone pocket watches! Ahh, the age of the mobile phone.
CONGRATULATIONS BRIAN.I have nominated YOU for a Blogger award, please pop over to my blog to accept... well done friend..http://williamm49.blogspot.com/2010/01/blogger-award.html
I'd like to wear a pocket watch as a necklace. But my kids would probably try to choke me with it.
Hi Brian:)There is great wisdom in these few words. We expect our life to go on indefinitely but as you rightly said;such are the daysof pocket watchessuch is the waywith lifeShakespeare who said:LIFE IS A BRIEF CANDLE-- would go green with envy with your composition.You made everything look so simple but I know this will require great mental effort and only a literary genius can do it. Lesser mortals like me can only sing praises and admire.I salute you for this brilliant effort.Have a wonderful day Brian:)Joseph
It feels like it is starting to tick faster.
You right very nostagically! love this!p.s. love your Indian name as well! :)
