It's Getting Later All The Time
Stopping Time At "Il Tempo"
in Vienna's Josefstadt

Tempus Fugit
The crevice

through which
time flees
can be ameliorated,

even patched,
through the healing powers

of thoughts
put to paper


"Si sta facendo sempre più tardi"
is one of my favorite books,
written by the Italian writer Antonio Tabucchi.
Even though the English translation
is "It's getting later all the time",
I was not even thinking of Tabucchi's novel
while I wrote the title of this post.
I was reflecting on how everything stays in flux,
the season, the day, life,
how it is getting later all the time, indeed.


on a late Sunday afternoon
in October 2010 at
Il Tempo
Café Bistro
Josefstädter Strasse
8th District

  1. ~~simply lovely~~

    it is about Time,
    isn't it?

    makes me wonder
    if you have read:
    Einstein's Dreams
    by Alan Lightman...

    {{ one of my
    All Time Favorites }}

    '''suppose time is a circle,
    bending back on itself.'''

    let me know.

  2. Simply fantastic. I like the creativity here.

  3. Very sad to report that Cafe Sabarsky at the Neue Galerie does NOT serve a spoon over the glass of water and cannot truly call itself an Austrian cafe.
    You have trained me too well M.

  4. Time is certainly flying away here. And work is piling up.

  5. Merisi, we were granted an extra hour by the Official Controllers of Time early Sunday morning when we bade farewell to Daylight Savings Time.

    I captured that hour to finally do a minor bit of tailoring to a new pair of jeans. And then...it did fly away, right over the horizon.

    The moon tonight looks very full...but apparently we will get the true fullness on Thursday. I do try to get an evening glimpse of the moon to keep my sense of time in tune with a big picture.

    However, the sense of time in the pictures in this post of yours really connect with my senses, too.



Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.
