PONDERING THE IMPORTANT THINGS IN LIFE

Since time is measured forward
And history is all we can know,
Since Aussies live in time that’s “to”
And we, in time that’s “fro,”
Since the sun moves along interminably
From east to west they say,
It is the tomorrow that matters most
For they will live an additional day.

Author’s Note: A comment on the confusion of the differences in time and dates between Australia and America… all brought about because Tony (in Australia) had a birthday… on February 5th (his 1st since 2005)
