Angel Sightings

Angels are everywhere. We encounter them daily, carved on the side of buildings; spotted in a cloud formation or fountain; in paintings, flowers and gravestones. Look around. They’re hovering near.

Tick-Tock Angel
A group of wrist watches on display, one of them with wings

There was plenty of time before I had to meet my friend in the city one winter day, so I ducked into a store to warm up while I waited. Inside on display I noticed a watch with angel wings. If only I had a pair of wings, I thought, I’d fly off to warmer weather! Looking at the watches, I remembered the “rule” for daylight saving time–spring forward, fall back. Fall was far behind me, but spring was just around the corner. I felt warmer already.
