Time is irrelevant. Unless you want to go back. That, unlike in the movies, can’t be done.
But hitting pause, slowing things down, or speeding things up, it’s how the Observers get by.
They walk among us, helping where they can – sometimes hindering – all the while fascinated with our obsession with time.
It seems we don’t have enough of the stuff. That, at least, is the complaint. The Observers however see time wasted, time ill-spent, time forgotten.
There’s plenty of it, really. So much, in fact, that it’s easy to get lost in its folds, it’s intricacies, its complexities. Time can be a wondrous and beautiful thing when appreciated.
And appreciation is all the Observers have for time. After all, time is all they have.
