|Allium, West Side of Binghamton, New York|
Yesterday, I participated in our community's Sacred Sites Sunday - a New York statewide initiative that has various houses of worship opening their doors for open houses to share their art and history. What I would like to do, eventually, is devote one day a week to some of the forgotten and (not so forgotten) history of our community.
I learned, at my second Sacred Sites Sunday, that a number of the churches in the Binghamton area community were destroyed by fire at one time or another, yet were rebuilt. It reminds me of how nothing is permanent. Nothing is forever.
It made me think, too of an 84 year old broadcast journalist, Morley Safer. He retired earlier this month and died just four days after making his final broadcast.
Time waits for no one. So, on that subject, a couple of songs for my last Music Monday.
Rolling Stones - Time Waits for No One
Driftwood - The Moody Blues (one of my favorite groups).
History, and the human experience. Time waits for no one at all, not even us.
How do you mark the passage of time?
