An SSS won’t take long to tell
So let’s get on with it. A Split Second ain’t long enough for one of Argie’s brief summaries. In fact it’s not long at all. Think of a moment that changes your life or the course of history itself—how long did it take for that bullet to pass through Kennedy’s brain, or the first nuclear explosion at Alamogordo? On a more worldly note certainly the first time I was ever curled up in a car with a delightful damsel certainly flew by (dammit)—
One Moment in Annihilation’s Waste,
One Moment, of the Well of Life to taste—
The Stars are setting and the Caravan
Starts for the Dawn of Nothing—Oh, make haste!
But there we go, even an SSS is subjective. Very so, sometimes. Yet often a split second exposure can capture in one brief instant the end product of hours of patient effort by Mother Nature (or Daddy Nature, if we’re into making obeisances to our beloved Politically Corrects).
This will have to do you for now, it’s still sunny outside after last night’s frost and I’m taking my camera for a walk. A quick beak at this split second’s worth of hundreds of millions of dollars worth of effort encapsulated in a split second exposure will show you why—
More soon, don’t wait up …
