Measuring Time Without a Clock is an exploratory work dedicated to uncovering the many nuances encountered by those laboring with the demands of modern societal structures. Through the use of short essays and unique poetic verse, life's daily encounters with reality and myth are shaped for the reader so as to engender a meaningful sense of self worth and in the world. The Bright, Dark and Other sides of civilization are traced to their roots. This book should be read by candlelight, accompanied by a glass of wine and perhaps an optional violent thunderstorm.
Jack Marshall, author of Long Shadows at Noon, hails from Michigan and currently resides in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Some of his other interests include daydreaming, whiskey drinking and womanizing. He has acknowledged that he should make some changes to his lifestyle but maintains that there is an infinite plan that will make order of things in the end. "Life," he suggests, "is blurred by the passage of time and is simply a tasty filler for our final reward."
