The social isolation has caused me to spend a great deal of time daydreaming about all the things I’d like to do after the lockdown ends. Window shopping at the Stanford Shopping Center I noticed a Patek Philippe watch on display. The price was astronomical and I didn’t really understand why. I love gadgets but this timepiece fell short in that department as it didn’t even have a second hand.
What it did have for a complication was a rotating dial that displayed twenty-four separate cities and locations each in a different timezone. After some thought I concluded that it’d be cheaper and a good deal more enjoyable to visit each of those twenty-four locations and blog about it. I suppose you could call it the Patek Philippe world tour. It’s just a fun little pie-in-the-sky fantasy to pass the time.
But who knows? I suppose if I really set my mind to it I could make it reality and I’m sure the memories would last a lifetime. Sometimes fantasies help up get through difficult and lonely times.
