time

timekeeperI recently mentioned the art festival in my town that includes One Book — a book for the whole town to read together. That book is The Time Keeper by Mitch Albom, and I began reading it today. Here’s how it opens:

A man sits alone in a cave.

His hair is long. His beard reaches his knees. He holds his chin in the cup of his hands.
He closes his eyes.
He is listening to something. Voices. Endless voices. They rise from a pool in the corner of the cave.
They are the voices of people on Earth.
They want one thing only.

Time.
