“Time is a valuable thing

Watch it fly by as the pendulum swings”

Time has been a fascination, not only for Linkin Park, but also for great storytellers Lewis Carroll, Charles Dickens, Christopher Nolan and it is as well for everyone. It is a prison that we all share as creatures in four dimensional realm.

Time can be so cruel as it does not wait for anyone. At the same time, time can be the only thing that heals so many wounds, especially unphysical ones.

Time lets us learn about ourselves, about the world around us, and about the relationships we have with our environments, including with our loved ones.

One of my mentors, the late Slamet Abdul Sjukur once wrote that there are so many things that we can learn from football players, gymnasts, runners, snipers, and also chefs. These professionals always try their best at doing their actions with good timings. A split second difference in execution make a whole world of different result.

We all want to make our world a little bit better, we want to be better persons, we want to achieve or to own more in our possessions, and we do all that in order to enjoy our very limited time in our lives.

And like everything else limited in live, it is very valuable albeit intangible.

A good friend of mine, @boymarpaung, has something to say about this: “Life is but a process, not a verdict”. Nobody has life all figured out, since no predictions are very well calculated for the exact outcomes. But the ones who thrive are the ones who let the time teaches them about everything, no matter how hard life ever hit them in the face.

“I had to fall to lose it all, but in the end, it doesn’t even matter”
