Acknowledgments: The author thanks the Robert Pope Foundation for permission to publish the paintings of Robert Pope in this issue.

It is one of the peculiarities of Time that it is intensely private and yet so widely shared. We could put it like this: that superficially, in the world of clocks and watches and appointments, we share Time; then, on a deeper level, it seems intensely private; and then, on a still deeper level, perhaps we begin to share it again, in ways we cannot fully understand.

J.B. Priestley, Man and Time, 1964 (1)
