Time , its not on my side !

Tempus Fugit

Well, where to start, Time…it’s what we all need to really, really be aware of

As Brian…(Cox) so likes to highlight Time travels forwards only , we cannot go back only forwards. Damn you Brian, my childhood fascination with the Doctor…No not Valentino , the other one Dr Who ruined !!!

In a way this fuels our tiny mindset of I will get to it …later.

Later …unfortunately doesn’t come to many.

I cherish the moments I spend with my mom, whenever we talk and I mention time passing quickly or idiots in Politics I get the “ cum grano salis” and then she almost always throws out …

Tempus Fugit …and a host of others …(😊)

So where does my fancy take me today , obviously only forwards ( Thank you Brian…) but yes , I’m having “the time of my life”…reminiscing over some of my all-time fav’s while exercising the “ol noggin” and giving the fingers a workout…don’t worry , Have Coffee , will blog !!!

Kicking off yes This is the day, its Saturday in the mountains …birds are singing and espresso is flowing

This is the day, The The

Well you didn’t wake up this morning ’cause you didn’t go to bed
You were watching the whites of your eyes turn red
The calendar on your wall is ticking the days off
You’ve been reading some old letters
You smile and think how much you’ve changed
All the money in the world couldn’t buy back those days

When I first heard The The it was like …wow. These guys are different, but also wow !

Question of Time , Depeche Mode.

It wouldn’t be a good day if there was no DM to drive the way forward.

Once in a lifetime, Talking Heads

Off the wall and underrated the Talking Heads were iconic in the 80’s with David Byrne as frontman in his oversize suit and eclectic sounds, loved their music

Time after Time, Cynthia Ann Stephanie Lauper

Different !

If you had to choose a word but supremely talented and just unfortunate to have entered the arena when one Madonna Louise Ciccone also happened to kickstart her career. I always loved her quirky style and haunting voice.

Iconic !

If I Could Turn Back Time“, Cher

If I could turn back time. If I could find a way. I’d take back those words that’ve hurt you. And you’d stay. I don’t know why I did the things I did. I don’t know why I said the things I said. Pride’s like a knife it can cut deep inside. Words are like weapons, they wound sometimes

Plastic can do that !

Time in a bottle , Jim Croce

Yes you don’t mess around with Jim (:0), or his dog. Taken too soon  he was a behemoth of the 70’s

Its what we all possible wish for , saving time for the ones we cherish and reliving moments in time

Stay away from small airplanes. Just saying.

Time, Madonna

Having stolen some of Cyndi’s spotlight Madonna accelerated onto the charts and never looked back. The queen of re-invention ala David Bowie she continued racking up hits barely stopping…this is Hung Up !

Time goes by so slowly

Time goes by so slowly

Time goes by so slowly

Time goes by so slowly

Time goes by so slowly

Time goes by so slowly

I get the lyrics 😊

Time, Pink Floyd

Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day. Fritter and waste the hours in an off-hand way. Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town.

Waiting for someone or something to show you the way. Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain.

You are young and life is long …

Now those are lyrics …sorry Maddie

Speaking of lyrics and icons one needs look no further than the man , the legend that is David Bowie, master magician and chameleon of the music world

Changes, Bowie

One of the greatest and and firm favorites in the Mountains of Ingber.

Still don’t know what I was waiting for

And my time was running wild

A million dead-end streets and

Every time I thought I’d got it made

It seemed the taste was not so sweet

So I turned myself to face me

But I’ve never caught a glimpse

Of how the others must see the faker

I’m much too fast to take that test

Sign of the times …Harry

What can I say , I took my daughter and a friend to see One Direction live. One of the best concerts ever…millions of screaming teenagers and did they put on a show or WHATTTTTTTT

Best audience they had had …so they said !

But. All good things come to an end and they have all gone their own way…

Times they’re a changing, Bob Dylan

Yup, true story Bob.

Come gather ’round people

Wherever you roam

And admit that the waters

Around you have grown

And accept it that soon

You’ll be drenched to the bone

If your time to you is worth savin’

Then you better start swimmin’

Or you’ll sink like a stone

For the times they are a-changin’

Poetry meets Music and Tracy, what a voice

Clocks , Coldplay

The lights go out and I can’t be saved. Tides that I tried to swim against. Have brought me down upon my knees. Oh I beg, I beg and plead, singing. Come out of things unsaid. Shoot an apple off my head and a. Trouble that can’t be named.

Yes, I know …this is The Scientist but couldn’t help myself. It’s the closing of the Paralympian Games 2012 and after all this is Disability Month.

Time has run out …literally. People to meet coffee to drink

My list could go on ;

Time of my Life, theme from Dirty Dancing

Dock of the Bay, Otis Redding

One more time , Daft Punk

Closing Time , Semisonic and/or Leonard Cohen

So let me choose wisely or be doomed to regret

Time on my side ….Rolling Stones

My love for this band should be apparent , classy tunes with iconic guitar riffs and Micks lyrics. This one is a classic. Note …NOT written my the Stones but a cover !

Go ahead, go ahead and light up the town
And baby, do everything your heart desires
Remember, I’ll always be around
And I know, I know like I told you so many times before
You’re gonna come back, baby
‘Cause I know
You’re gonna come back knocking
Yeah, knocking right on my door

And as if , as if there was such a thing as coincidence ….

From the incredible collection that is Timepieces , Knocking on heaven’s door

Performed by many this is an iconic song and in the light of time , Eric take it away ( sorry Bob), actually hold my cup…lets do the Axl Rose version today , hit it Slash.

Mama, take this badge off of me
I can’t use it anymore
It’s gettin’ dark, too dark to see
I feel I’m knockin’ on heaven’s door

What would a Reflection be without a little Seth…fresh this week ( almost as if he knew !)

The focus on the last thing

The play before time ran out. The last speech of the campaign. The typo on your resume or the spot on your tie. The final decision before the company declared bankruptcy.

We focus on the thing that happened just before the end. And that’s almost always an unimportant moment.

Things went wrong (or things went right) because of a long series of decisions and implementations. A misguided strategy, a bad hire, a brilliant insight about network effects–these are the acts with leverage, not the obvious thing that all the pundits would like to talk about.

When you get to the thing before the last thing, don’t sweat it.

It’s almost certainly too late to make the outcome change.

On the other hand, when you’re quietly discussing the thing before that before that before that before that, it might pay to bring more attention to it than the circumstances seem to demand. Because that’s the key moment.

Deep ! Thank you Seth G

And its nearly that time again , time to say goodbye and what better way than perhaps THE best “love-song” performed EVER

Time to leave , Andreas Bottichelli and the vpoice of an angel, yes Sarah Brightman

Last comment , Brian Cox  since you started all of this ….

The story of the universe finally comes to an end. For the first time in its life, the universe will be permanent and unchanging. Entropy finally stops increasing because the cosmos cannot get any more disordered. Nothing happens, and it keeps not happening, forever. It’s what’s known as the heat-death of the universe. An era when the cosmos will remain vast and cold and desolate for the rest of time the arrow of time has simply ceased to exist.

It’s an inescapable fact of the universe written into the fundamental laws of physics, the entire cosmos will die.

Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?

Caught in a landslide, no escape from reality

Open your eyes, look up to the skies and see

I’m just a poor boy, I need no sympathy

I feel another post coming 😊

Do you know what time it is …..?
