Now the years are rolling by me–
They are rockin’ evenly.
I am older than I once was,
And younger than I’ll be.
That’s not unusual;
No, it isn’t strange:
After changes upon changes
We are more or less the same;
After changes we are more or less the same.
–The Boxer, Paul Simon
Prompt: It’s About Time
This week we’re going to talk about time. Time travel, nostalgia, growing old, birth and renewal, decay – hit me with whatever you’ve got that inspires you. I’ve included the above quote and photo as a jumping off point, but as long as you stick to the broader theme of “Time” you should do just fine. No limitations on genre.
Word limit: 300.
