Time and the Taxi Man – for Danny

Many years ago on the last day of our Jamaican honeymoon the hotelkeeper called a taxi to take us from Ocho Rios to the airport in Montego Bay for our flight home.

When the driver picked us up he worried we hadn’t enough time for the 100 kilometer trip,  and so as we left the hotel,  he began to speed.

Sure enough, we were soon pulled over by a policeman.

“Please man, you got to let us go.”,  our driver told him.  “Time,  she is against these two people.”

The officer did let us go and we made our flight,  but all these years later we still remember the wise words of our Jamaican taxi man.

So seize the day my friends.  Time,  she is against us all!
