This Time I SighThe tick of the clock measures a life,This Time I Sigh by Dragon-Demygod
The days that pass can dull a knife.
The grains of sand can pass the time,
But what does that mean when you are blind?
By the spring we call it birth,
And in the summer it fills the earth.
But soon the fall brings forth the death,
So that the winter can give us rest.
Yet how do we spend the time we have,
Can you really say that you are glad?
But even now our life does pass,
And so the clock will measure our last.
Time: Ramblings of a Mad ManClocks, if ever two preside in the same room only a second off from each other the ticks are enough to drive any man mad. Tick tick tick tick with tocks thrown in. Double time, even the ordinary tick tock drives some to be madder than a box of frogs. Clocks keep time, but how are we to know what time it truly is? We set clocks based off of other clocks that could be wrong. It can be adjusted. Some have clocks minutes ahead. There are different time zones and spring forward and fall back. Minutes, seconds, even hours off. How can we know if any clock is right? It all started with the idea of the sun keeping time. How do we know if any man could ever understand the precise shining of the sun and rotational orbits? It favors other continents sometimes more than others. They are day while we are night. Some places are day longer. Time zones are put into place by us to try to account for these shifts across the world. Time is abstract yet has to be exact.

My Item - A ClockMy item has many forms and is found in many rooms. It is an item where even when everyone is looking at the same on there is always a different view, different perspective, the mine of each person sees its workings differently. Even now you may be looking at it thinking something different then the person next to you.My Item - A Clock by AshleyWass
Even now perhaps it echoes in your mind. Tick tock tick tock. The second hand sweeps across the numbered face. Tick tock tick tock. The minute hand follows ever so slowly as you wonder, has it been three minutes yet? The hour hand even slower as you wonder is it time to go home? Even now I can’t escape it. It breaks my concentration even as it is the object of my concentration. Tick tock tick tock.
It is round though I doubt it would roll on such a thin side. It has bold black numbers evenly spaced in a circle beneath the glass face. 1, 2, 3, and so on until it reaches 12. There is a long red hand, the one constantly moving through many never pay it any mind excep
• How to Join
Click on 'Join our Group', write something pretty, click submit, and you're now a member. Anyone may be a member even if they have no pieces in their gallery to submit. You just have to be interested in the group.
• How to Submit Artwork
Go into our gallery and submit into the appropriate folder. Make sure it has something to do with the group's theme, and if your submission has mature content then make sure it has the filter.
Because 'Time' can be so abstract it should be somehow obvious that the piece is connected with it. Either through the title, the artwork, or the description of the deviation. Devices that measure time are encouraged too, but that doesn't exclude time machines from being submitted.
Right now the number of submissions are unlimited per member until the group grows. The Featured folder is only reserved for contests or special occasions. If you have any questions or doubts, feel free to note one of the admins.
If you wish to affiliate your group with us, just click on the affiliate tab in your group's main page and type our name in. We accept all groups.
Feel free to note one of the admins if you have any suggestions on group events. Since we're small we won't be having many contests soon, but a monthly newsletter with features is being considered.
Promote the group if you can through your journal, signature, etc. If you know someone who may be interested, invite them. We're aware that there's many craftsmen out there who share a similar interest as we do.
