Composition #X is part of the 10-collage Fragments series.
Collages are pieced together and inspired by human courage and resilience across the globe. So many people facing adversity are determined to pick up the pieces and move forward after experiencing loss from natural disasters. It is inspiring!
In this one I address the concept of time and how when faced with a disaster, time seems to spiral out of control. Time keeps on ticking, no matter how much we have to do or how many deadlines we have to meet.
Perhaps you can relate to a situation where time was your biggest stressor. Perhaps you faced a natural disaster where you had to dig deep, pickup the pieces left and rebuild.
Perhaps time was moving too fast for some things and way too slow for other things. Either way, time was the stressor.
Time is a major factor in life we all wish we could control, but in all fundamental ways it controls us.
Perhaps thinking about time today may give you the opportunity to re-evaluate how you spend time. Perhaps how you choose to spend time has renewed value.
I know this year marks a new extreme record in my book. Time has gone by so slow and so fast at the same time. Each month that goes by has felt like an eternity. Meanwhile, I haven’t seen my family since Thanksgiving of last year. No one is getting younger and time is ticking away!
