The idiomatic phrase ‘time will tell’ means that you will discover in the future what the result of a present situation is (source). And 👍🏻, there are many things that we have to wait till some time passes, and let the passage of time happen. However, that does not mean we can do nothing until time tells us whatever it has to tell. We can definitely do other things in the meantime, and maybe become the talk of the time (in a positive, good way of course!!) or simply live in the moment and enjoy the little things.
Like listening to this song titled ‘Time Will Tell’ by Bob Marley!

Talk of the Time Will Tell
The Talk by Darrin Bell (Biographies, Racism, & History – Graphic Novels | Henry Holt and Co. | June 6, 2023)
Description: Darrin Bell was six years old when his mother told him he couldn’t have a realistic water gun. She said she feared for his safety, that police tend to think of little Black boys as older and less innocent than they really are.
My One-Sentence Review: Heart-wrenching but required reading, repeatedly too. The little Darrin Bell being told of the dangers of being black by his mom – that face – got to me.

My One-Sentence Review: Poetry that tugs at your heartstrings one poem, one writing, one beautiful image at a time.
Talk of the Time Will Tell…
When I did a search for the first part of this phrase, one of the things returned was a link to ‘The Most Popular TED Talks of All Time‘. Looking at it was surprising, for I had just finished seeing the first two that showed up (or maybe it is just the whole ‘internet’ watching us thing) as part of the psychology class I am currently taking. In case you are wondering which ones, they are
The first one has indeed withstood the test of time, and time did tell us people watch it for the truth spoken with humor by Sir Ken Robinson in that talk. Now, we need to work towards ensuring that schools nurture creativity, and if we all try, then only time will tell how we have done.
And Now, the End of This Post
