    The “Ghost Clock” is a fascinating piece of artwork, done by the modern sculptor and furniture maker Wendell Castle. While the piece may appear to just be a grandfather clock covered with a sheet, it is actually one whole piece. The Ghost Clock is completely made of mahogany. To achieve the look of a sheet draped over a clock, Castle had to bleach the wood multiple times in order to strip it of all its natural color, seen on the bottom of the sculpture. This is part of what makes the piece so interesting. Castle was able to take a hardwood and make it look as soft and supple as a cotton sheet. He carved all of the folds and shadows to obtain a fabric-like look. Wendell Castle has lived and worked in various places throughout the country, often creating pieces based upon where in the United States he was living.

    Initiated by a satirical essay penned by Benjamin Franklin in 1784, the idea of changing sleep schedules came to mind due to the “rude awakening” that the summer sun caused Franklin at 6:00 am in Paris. However, it wasn’t until 1905 that the first ever campaign to move the clocks forward between April and October was promoted; The “Waste of Daylight” measure was led by Englishman William Willet.

    vest. It is a very unique watch, one that I am very fond of because it is one of the only things that was ever given to me before…before my world was lost to isolation and fear. I try not to think of the time before, not that there is much I can remember, but the watch always holds a piece of memory for me that is somehow warm and comforting. Call it overly sentimental to be so attached to a timepiece, but it is a part of me. I close my eyes against the gold designs on the watch’s case and…

It had tricked her into believing that instead of being the last hour of the day, it was actually around lunchtime. Now that the clock is fixed—well, partially fixed, still being an hour behind—, it is now working properly again. A pacemaker is very similar to this. Think of the heart as the clock and the pacemaker as the remedy that fixes the clock. Like the clock still being an hour behind, the…

    They didn't know this would happen. Nobody did. And now they will pay. As the world came into focus, I realized my phone was not ringing as it was in my dream. It was my alarm clock, honking it’s tune at me, signaling that it was time to get up. I smashed my hand on the snooze button, missed, and instead, I smashed my hand on the corner of my bedside table. “OWWWW!” I yelled jumping out of bed to look at my hand. Thankfully, there was only minor bleeding. As I went to clean up my hand and put…
