“The Autumn of That Hour” / Memorable Fancies #3152

[“…autumn of that hour.” – Ben Marcus]

Hours have dawns and dusks, :01 and :59 … and seasons: :05 is a bright Spring, fresh with promise. :25 a time when the promise of that minute has become problematic. :43 a time of reassessment, a realization that :49 is approaching sooner than we realized, that time remains but our projects must be hastened.

At :55 we look back and try to understand what seemed to have value earlier in the hour, what was tried and failed, what still seems promising at least if the next hour will take them up.

At :59 we wait for the next shift to appear, to continue on with our projects, or ignore them and invent their own.

At :00 there is some discussion, among our oldest seconds, as to whether :00 properly belongs to the old minute or to the new. But this debate lasts only a second.
