Yesterday’s the past, tomorrow’s the future, but today is a gift. That’s why it’s called the present.

Bil Keane

I figured it is so easy to get caught up in what we should have done or should be doing but what about the now. How about learning how to enjoy the present much like we did as children before life got complicated. It seems to be quite hard to stop and appreciate the simple things. What are you grateful for now?

I am grateful for my present – it truly is a present.

The quote by Bil Keane was my inspiration to make clocks is time equals present!  Well that and the fact that being creative helps me appreciate being in the present, it makes me enjoy the process of making things.

I have used a discarded piece of Douglas Fir from an amazing local sawmill a few miles away, although it is somewhat transformed from when I picked it from the ground. It is a sight to behold when you visit, makes me think of the sawmills in America, with its huge canopy of trees surrounding the large open-sided shed. The floor is piled high with sawdust and the smell is amazing.
