Broken time - Photo Thursday week #69 challengeThis week’s photo thursday challenge subject is brokenness of time, being built from a snippet from Kurt Vonnegut’s Man Without a Country

My take on the subject is the attached image, a chunk of first bona fide carved hieroglyphics I’ve seen. No idea what it means, but it easily shows that even if time itself is measured in fleeting seconds, some things will last through the millennia.

Initially thought about a clock running backwards, but don’t have one on my wall (though have been longing for one for quite a while). And my recollection whether KuuKuu really has a Gammeldansk-supplied one on their wall is too vague to warrant a quick drop in to ascertain the fact. An image of my calendar wouldn’t have been of much use either – the content is true to the task (time splintering into useless fragments), but I’d seriously break all possible NDAs showing that, and a snapshot of an Outlook screen simply isn’t as nifty as a piece of ancient egyptian rock.

(As usual, the full-size photograph is available by clicking the attached image)
