The Time Keeper -Mitch Albom

” WE DO NOT REALIZE THE SOUND THE WORLD MAKES  – UNLESS, OF COURSE, IT COMES TO STOP. THEN, WHEN IT STARTS, IT SOUNDS LIKE AN ORCHESTRA” –Mitch Albom, The Time Keeper

 

The Timekeeper is a novel written by Mitch Albom, one of my favorite authors. Here he tells the story of the inventor of the world’s first clock who was punished for wanting and for trying to measure God’s greatest gifts. As punishment, he was banished to a cave for so long and that from there he is forced to listen to voices of all who came after him seeking more days, more years

This novel will help us reconsider our own notions of time, how we spend, and how precious it truly is and this,  for me has been and will always be how I view time.

    wow Mich sounds like a very interesting book … I often avoid people who are consistently late coz if you steal my time I can never get it back … it’s more precious than possessions to me, life flies too quickly!

  9. Great book share, and yes Time is as they say an illusion, speeding up or slowing down depending on our perception… Take today this morning just flew by Hours in what seemed like an hour… And this Week so far, Tuesday already… And November the 6th already when it was only moments ago it was Halloween…
    Great share.. ❤
