Time and times are dictated by what you do and how you perceive the events that affect you.
Time accumulates, like water in a pond; then vanishes, evaporates, is absorbed or just used to irrigate some weed. You can use it while it’s there or take it for granted, but if you try to save it you’ll just find it gone when it’s needed most.
“Times” are like the drops in that pond and the ripples they create. They can replenish, wear you down in slow erosion or wash everything away in a flood.
A person can stand in a puddle, swearing at the rain, cursing as their clothes get soaked, or dance, naked in the storm; shouting defiance as the lightning flashes and the thunder rumbles around them.
I suppose it’s all about perception…
