Wow... I thought that was an extremely powerful blend of music and parallelism. I was wondering at first why they chose 86400 dollars at first (as opposed to say... a million), but when it read that there are 86400 seconds in a day, I just had to smile at the brilliance of it.
Whoever wrote the words for that clip, I have to admit, has got to be a really good speaker, or persuasive writer. It really does get you to think.
My theory is that sometimes for enjoyment, we just sit around and do nothing. Kind of like a break from everything else we do during the day. Granted the gift of retrospect, some areas of our lives seem like a waste of time, but at that moment seemed like pure enjoyment. So perhaps what seems a waste of time is not a waste after all. I've always believe in being spur of the moment, and doing what your heart tells you, and if it's nothing... so be it.
Actually I wrote a short piece to myself when I was brooding about something I didn't do a while back [had something to do with a girl I believe (no pun intended)]... perhaps it may grant insight to some (and others may not understand what I am saying at all).
Clocks—an everyday, and ordinary feature of life—a timepiece, an adornment, a measure of accomplishment. They are all around us, measuring the minutes and hours that go by. With each movement of the dials, with every change of the numbers on whatever creative interface they bear, we are reminded that another unobtainable piece of relevancy is lost. Loss—yet another term of relevancy, for in retrospect, everything seems all the clearer.
