If you see someone look at their watch and could then quickly ask them the time, they would very likely look again at their watch .They had and we seldom, look to see the time but rather to see if we have time. Are we on time? Must we rush or relax or make some plan or perhaps ready an excuse.We often look in our time, but seldom see what we look at, like the timepiece .We did not see the watch we saw but the passage of time.
When we look at a route we/'/re walking do we see anything but where our steps are taking us? The tree in bud or bloom or the bird singing as we pass. Do we take notice of the pan handler or the litter? Perhaps we have our filters. Perhaps where we/'/re going is single minded and selective, needlessly
When we face a friend or a stranger do we see them or do we look to see how they might impact or effect us. Do we see or just move through our time.
Can time be spent more meaningfully. More appreciatively. Prolonged by seeing, simply seeing as we pass through the time. When going somewhere we must pass through visages,scenes and subjects but usually regretfully we only see our objective.
When we look at our goal is it the journey ending only in our view with no thought of the things we/'/re passing through.
We are selectively blinded not by the lack of light but of having our vision veiled by perceptions of needed accomplishments. Achievement. Completion.
We met our set goal. We arrived at the point we set out for. We saw the end but saw not through the passing time.
We saw the time but not the watch.The watch hands. It/'/s gold case or bracelet. Nor even the human that spent the time being passed and ticked away. Probably not even the person who asked, Do you have the time"

Well do you?

Interesting piece and I wholeheartedly agree with you. We spend so much of our lives as we get older basically in a rush to get nowhere instead of slowing down and paying closer attention to what is around us like we did when we were children. This was very well written, great job

A fine piece of art, with a simply message that we as a people never take to heart.

Thank you for sharing
