I view time as something that is very much like water (I am referring to river, ocean water). Like water, time is constantly changing and is never really the same. The raindrops represent seconds which are melting into the clock of days, onths, years. I also believe that to a certain extent we control time, with our system of measuring time. However, our perception of time is shaped by our lack of control and by our experiences, i.e. when the minute can seem like an hour and viceversa.
