A Century of Moments


The pendulum wiped away seconds like raindrops, a century of wasted moments smeared and thinned and dissolved back into time which will charge them again with purpose and good intention before they're lost to elements unnecessary.

"This weekend we're asking for exactly 33 of your own words plus the following three words:
So 33 of yours plus 3 of ours means that everyone will have a 36 word response this time around."

I like the idea of century as a collection of one hundred as well as a marker of time.

You gain momentum with your words right away and then there's no stopping. I especially liked the pendulum too!

I like the saying time would be recharged with moments to act. Good job.

In my mind, I saw/felt the pendulum swing like a windshield wiper. And I like the idea of time recharging moments!
