Modern Time “in a dim light”

The days in Merida are slow, hot and sticky. Nights flow by at a more hurried pace. Eliot writes of the flow of time in “Burnt Norton”, the first of the Four Quartets.
“Here is a place of disaffection
Time before and time after
In a dim light: neither daylight
Investing form with lucid stillness
Turning shadow into transient beauty
With slow rotation suggesting permanence
Nor darkness to purify the soul
Emptying the sensual with deprivation
Cleansing affection from the temporal…”
