Join a few moments together and you get a whole piece of time. Or a peace of time. Or a  time of peace.

So time is like patchwork too. A lifetime made up of moments stitched together.

Bind a patchwork quilt and you get to stand – for a moment or two – on the edge of time.

Look from a different angle and time is distorted. It runs away.

Look it squarely in the face and time is where you are. Time is a place to be.

Each circle a moment in time, a moment of peace, an oasis of calm. May your life be filled with moments like these.
