“The clock that I’ve called Time to Time demonstrates how I believe time to be,” Castle writes.

“Time to Time makes one revolution approximately every twelve hours. The surface upon which it rolls will never be perfect, as the road on which we travel will always have interruptions. If Time to Time hits a bump in its path, it must gather strength to overcome the disruption, much as we must gather strength to overcome the obstacles in our lives. However, the clock will then move forward. We all get stuck in time, from time to time.”
