Happy New Year Everyone (and not just clock lovers)

The bad news is time flies. The good news is you’re the pilot

Ringing in the New Year is for reminiscing, reliving, looking back and looking forward.

As champagne corks pop, glasses are raised and fireworks explode into the sky, it is important to recognize the special symbolism this holiday brings with it. Amid promises of new beginnings and fresh starts comes a time of reflection and resolutions that more often than not tend to be short lived. Whether your goals consist of losing a little weight or improving your relationships with loved ones, it can make all the difference when hopes are transformed into words and actions.

Happy New Year clock lovers everywhere. Where will your horological journey take you in the months to come? Will it be finding that special clock, finally servicing mom’s favorite mantel clock or buying that unique clock repair tool?

Perhaps you have made resolutions that are not necessarily clock related and if so, avoid disappointment by making them specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and time-framed.

We all get the exact same 365 days. The only difference is what we do with them. There is an old Rolling Stones song called Time Waits For No-one and these two lines come to mind for this time of the year.

The dreams of the night time will vanish by dawn
And time waits for no one, and it won’t wait for me

The best to you and yours in 2019.

  1. With what marvelous words (and so true) you started your post, Ron! Indeed, we are the pilots of our own time, and we must take care of that every moment in our lives. I wish you a happy New Year together with your family, with health and joy, but also with great moments for your hobby! 🙂
