Musical Coincidence

A long time ago I was sitting in our kitchen and Marjorie was in the living room. The Byrds were playing on the stereo.

“Turn! Turn! Turn! (To Everything There Is a Season)” was on and I slowly realised that the clock in the next room was ticking in exact time with it – no matter how long the song went on for, the clock tick didn’t deviate, which is pretty amazing. Just as this started to dawn on me, Marjie called in from the other room pointing out the same thing, and I was very surprised that she had noticed as well.

After another minute or so it dawned on us both that the clock was one which Marjie had customized by inscribing around its perimeter the verse from Ecclesiastes, “To everything there is a season and a time for every purpose under heaven”!
