Sherlock and the clock

The fresco and the making

The involvement of the community

Neighbours, clients, friends were invited to take a picture with the artwork in progress so their picture could be posted on social media showing their support and gratitude to the Health professionals.  It has added a lot of fun in the making and I thank all of them for meeting with us at the store.

SHERLOCK  AND  THE  CLOCK

The meaning

TIC-TOC,  said the clock.

What time is it?  said Sherlock

It is time to change !  This time has come… answered the clock

Why can’t you STOP?  asked Sherlock

I cannot stop…I am the bearer of life, the creator of time…
Why don’t YOU change? asked the clock. 

Your world has lost its balance, NOT ME… said the clock
I am a constant, I do not change.
I can offer you stability and you can lean on me.
Listen to those unanswered prayers, those cries of pain around the world…  said the clock

But HOW?  said Sherlock
I am just ONE !  I cannot change the world on my own…

That’ s right ! said the clock
But then, why don’t you try to change WITH the world ?

Only if you change from the inside, you can reach the outside.
Tune in to the world heart beat, and everything will become clear.  said the clock
Hold your neighbor s’ hands from Male to Miami, from New York to Paris, 

Tokyo to Moscow, Bamako to Rio de Janeiro…

I understand. Said Sherlock
Let us be all citizens of the world, NO MORE Frontiers…
Let us protect our future, LIFE on earth.

TOGETHER, ONLY TOGETHER we can succeed and find PEACE
