10:10 wake up call

Every day for the last month my phone alarm would chime off at 10:10 am. Because I had no recollection of the purpose or need for it to "alarm me" at that time and figured it was a divine sign from the Muse. Perhaps it was a "wake up call", like a signal to look around and pay attention. Using my phone, I took a photo each day when I silenced the alarm. Finally on October 10th, 10/10/15, I figured it was enough, and I turned off the alarm for good. Looking back through the accumulated pictures, I thought I might find a clue as to how and where I am spending my life.

Most of the time I was in class, doing my job. I'd retrieve the phone from my purse at the desk and take a picture from that vantage point. A hand full of times I was home, once I was at the doctors office, and twice I was at the airport.

Also twice this month I was still in bed, "under the weather" in bed, when the alarm sang out.
The photos are like time slices...

My phone now alarms me at 4:25 pm every other day or so. I use that is a time to say some prayers.
