In the blink of an eye it was all over.

And “it” delineates all of life.

The moments of our lives pass by in succession, a steady stream of blinks.

How often have we sat down to an interesting project, headed to an anticipated gathering or been engaged in a great book only to blink and realize it was over?

Thus, the blink of an eye is the measure of our limited human nature.

Time traps yet eludes us.
