Blog #26- Invitation of an Alarm Clock

September 23, 2014

No matter the sound, whether loud and clanging or gentle and soothing, an alarm clock achieves its purpose – to break into a dream and to interrupt a deep or fitful sleep.

The alarm is on hand to offer a new day. Flapping window shades provide a peek outside to indicate weather conditions – sunny – cloudy – rainy plus hot –muggy-cool. The alarm also heralds another “ to do list” or alternative form of predetermined plan.

However, despite good intentions to follow a schedule, one’s “map” for the day could be interrupted by a surprise message of unforeseen good news or a curve ball of crisis. The choice to respond to the alarm and move forward into a never before experienced day results in new problems and also new possibilities. We respond accordingly. Time to get up!
