Time According to Stephen King: Impressions from 11.22.63

Time harmonizes with itself.    One can imagine a classical guitar player playing amelody, so pure that the million strings on the million string guitar getstighter and tighter, then the crystal breaks and shatters as the customersscream.  Time knows how many strings are to be playedat any one time.  King shows that if onegoes back in time the harmony may get too pure that it will reverberate acrossthe time strings.  The tune will have costly results.
Time is not something to playwith. We all have a need to reset some part of our past.  The day we walked into the local newsstand and bought our first porno magazine.   The day we missed an important deadline.  The day we blew off our dad or mom when they needed us most. But time turns on a dime. The tune has already been perfectly harmonized.   So what does that mean to the troubles of a time?  Well that is part of the harmonization.    However,this is not a bitter note.  This is a note that life is life.  And one’s hopesare important, because when people lose hope there is bound to be explosions.(
