Lately, I've been waking up at night and looking at my clock. It's a digital clock. Once in a while, when I look at it, the time changes -- say it's 3:06 a.m., and then the clock changes to 3:07.
That scares me. I don't like to see time jump like that. It makes me realize that minutes are swallowed up, gone, never to be seen again.
I don't like digital clocks. It doesn't seem natural. Time is a smooth continuum, moving from one second to the next. You just don't jump like that from one minute to the next.
