Night and Day

'Night and Day' by Jina Wallwork

The revolving process of night and day continues. I exist within this constant flow of time and yet some days seem longer than others. I cannot change the length of a day by using my hands to hold back time. However, my emotions connect to the energy of time, and my experience of how time passes is altered. I cannot change time but each second is constantly in flux. Although time is a constant, there are many differences. The most obvious is, night and day, but there are smaller differences in how we experience the smallest moments of time. The uniformity of a second is completely undone by your emotions. We all experience time differently, yet we all move at the same pace. When we are excited time seems to move at a faster rate. When we are bored time seems to extend. Two people with these emotions can exist within the same time but their experience will be as opposite as night and day. We are all connected through the present, yet time does not restrict our ability to experience life in a way that is reflective of who we are. Our emotions allow us to feel life and create our own pace for how we live. Time also creates a shared structure where we can connect to the lives of others and spend time together.
