Fragments of Time
“He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.”
– Ecclesiastes 3:11
We divide our lives into segments—infancy, childhood, adolescence, adulthood. We measure out our days by the second, each of us with a device either on our wrist or nearby to check the time. But life is not time; time is merely how we measure life. Life is made of moments, fragments. These fragments are what become our memories, which we carry with us for the rest of our lives.
In this 108th issue, I hope to create a kaleidoscope of time. Show us the fragments that bring you joy, along with those that might still hurt to remember. Explore your memories through art and writing, allowing yourself to look back and examine what you have been through and thank God for where you are now. Do not stop at the past. Show us your hopes for the future. No matter which fragments you choose to write about, show us each color of your kaleidoscope.
