The face when it had just been completed.
The visible plaster remnants need to be scraped off.

Dawn ... six a.m. ... the point between dark and light.

A magical time.

Watching over your outer.
Watching over inside.

So it WAS a clock face! Anonmymous noticed that too yesterday. I thought that I was just seeing things. What a wonderful idea!..and all the layers of symbolism, the blessings and the watching over and the auspiciousness of the time displayed permanently on the watch. Lovely!

The watching over aspect reminds me of a song. I am sure there must be others with this theme but the one I am thinking of is from the perspective of a woman/man feeling lost and longing for someone to come into their lives to watch over them:

There's a somebody I'm longing to see
I hope that she turns out to be
Someone who'll watch over me

I'm a little lamb who's lost in a wood
I know I could always be good
To one who'll watch over me.

Isn't that what we miss most about childhood, the knowledge that someone is always watching over us. And isn't that the promise of the Mightiest One, that we will be watched over:

"For He will give His angels charge concerning you, to guard you in all your ways. They will bear you up in their hands, lest you strike your foot against a stone" (Psalm 91:11-12).

Just beautiful, Elspeth!

I love Psalm 91, those few lines in particular. Very true.
