Once upon a time, in a grandma or an aunt’s parlor, there was clock that could be heard in the quiet…tick…tick…tick…. Can you remember sitting there and listening? Can you recall, once more, the serenity that came over you…the feeling that, for a moment, all was right with the world.
Those days have vanished in the dust of a fast-paced, “no time to sit and listen” world. Many have never sat in such a parlor, nor would they even care to. Yet, for some of us, we return from time to time to that peaceful scene in a “once upon a time” parlor. We close our eyes and listen…tick, tick, tick…and once more all is right in the world.
