Clocks and Silly Sayings

My daughter and her love of well, quite silly made up, sayings. She starting quoting this sometime around 5th grade, maybe 6th grade. She has always been a very creative writer, honestly, she should consider a career in fictional writing, but that is not likely to happen. 

"One cannot assume for thy clocks, clocks cannot assume for thee."

When asked what it means, she just kind of shrugs her shoulders. Only she knows its true origin and meaning. that is fine for her to keep it to herself. 

But I thought it was time it was written down, and maybe copyrighted? I think the meaning lies somewhere in her lack of concept of time, she runs purely on artists time. Which if any of you have ever known a true artist, time is a concept of unknown quantity with an artist. If it cannot be rendered on canvas, it does not exist. Therefore, the essence of time is really an object, a clock or watch, which really become more like a decoration or jewelry, in an artists eye.

This page was created using the Cinnamon edition of the Project Life App. The colors and vintage feel of the collection suited the subject matter quite well. Not to mention the cards available. Hello? "time well spent"! Boom!

Do you have any family sayings or quirky things you say or someone you know? Its time to get that documented! It is a part of who they are, a part of their story, and trust me, future generations will want to know it.

Thank you for stopping by today.

Keep being creative, Sandy
