Prologue
Time is vast in many ways. It can be complex or straight forward. It can be a chronological point or a special moment – cyros or kronos . A point determined by the sun’s continuous movement, or that some moment of the heart and mind that is timeless.

One doesn’t have to be a Christian to appreciate the beginning of chapter 3 from the Book of Ecclesiastes (commonly referred to as A Time for Everything). It’s appropriate for all.

For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:
a time to be born, and a time to die;
a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;
a time to kill, and a time to heal;
a time to break down, and a time to build up;
a time to weep, and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
a time to throw away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
a time to seek, and a time to lose;
a time to keep, and a time to throw away;
a time to tear, and a time to sew;
a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
a time to love, and a time to hate;
a time for war, and a time for peace. (NRSV version)

I first posted about time here, and then later as a joint effort with a photographer – and in time, came the joy known as Time: The Musical. For me, this musical extravaganza ends to beautiful music fitting for a prologue. The video is actually a commercial that I adore, which (to me) seems to be about chronos through karos.

The challenge for the audience is to share a musical treat about a personal special moment in time or a song about time that you enjoy. Try not to embedding, but I don’t mind unembedding. Thanks to everyone who participated in this musical, and I will announce the next musical in a future Opinion in the Shorts.

Act 8
Act 8 focuses on songs about short time. Because songs with minute(s) and second(s) are limited, the producer is opening it up to other words as moment, ticks, instant, and others – but beware as words have other meanings outside of the sense of time. Besides pleasing the new producer, an additional challenge for attendees is no duplicates.
