"If I only had a heart"

How do we measure time? Clocks are functional but artificial. What if we measured time in heartbeats? A good friend of mine has a new heart, a new clock, a new lease on life. The Tin Man was given a watch. Captain Hook lived until his clock ran down. Tick Tock

I've noticed that it always seems to take longer to get where you are going than it does to return, "Are we there yet?" Perhaps it is a hold over from childhood or adolescence..... As I age everything seems to be faster, a day is like an hour a week like a day a year like a month. Time flies when you are having fun and 15 minutes in a dentist's chair can seem like hours.
