Grandfather Clocks Slow Time

Loading...Please Wait...

Posted April 29, 2008

We live in a modern world of constant movement. Between the Internet and cell phones most of us are hardly inaccessible for more than five minutes at a time. And in response to this environment that is "always on," deadlines are shortened, meetings are held by videoconferencing within a matter of moments, and emails are expected to be responded to day or night.

In this world of continual flow, it's nice to come across those items of yesteryear that remind us of a slower time when we were able to relax and take it all in rather than rushing on to the next event. Grandfather clocks embody this slower generation; a grand, majestic testimony to a gentler time. And so it's no wonder that so many people most armed with a memory of a grandfather clock from their childhoods, choose to put a grandfather clock of their own in their own home.
