(phew) thank heavens that’s over~! Time is just too important for me to flabble about with, no matter how big the Challenge. So—
WHAT DO THE NEXT
three images have in common? Sure, you’ll spot part of it straight off—
—not the least of which is you’ll have seen this statue of Minerva before but from slightly different angles. So … this time … ?
to something completely different (not). You may just recognise a wee portion of this one—
—and even from here I can hear your tumblers snicking into place. Good, well done and all that stuff, keep up the good work but let’s not rest on our laurels.
Third and final shot awaits your attention—
—quite unlike time and tide of which neither waits for no man. Or is it a spirited Spouse that waits for no man? Who knows these days when everyone is liberated except me … dum’ dog. Oops, back to that image and all your gasted flabbers; I’ll bet you weren’t expecting this~ so—
what is that the three subjects share? Have shared? Shore, shorn? Bugger … okay, think what happens when any two physical (material) objects attempt to share the same space at the same time. Ouch. Something has to give: we get disruption. And as nothing is too disrupted in these pictures it seems that although they are sharing the same space … it ain’t at the same time.
That lovely(?) wee clock in Wachner Place is built on the site of the building which a few generations ago supported Minerva as she proudly offered her garland of wisdom to the passersby (who, face it, couldn’t none of ’em give a stuff really*).
both connects us in their future with those cheery (okay, oblivious) souls in our past and vice-versa. And it separates us likewise at the same time, which is quite clever of it really—just you try doing that when laying bricks.
Then again, if you really want to get technical, it’s not just the few scruffy years that keeps us apart, it’s hundred of millions of miles. But we won’t go into all that—we don’t have the time.
* Serves her right for being above everyone else. No good ever comes of being uppity.
