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.
