Various feelings can appear so strong in a countdown. Of course, it depends on what will happen at the end of the count. The most exciting and fun happens when people gather together in various places in the world before the new year. All people, in general, are enchanted in the momentary euphoria of the new year, congratulating each other in joy, followed by various resolutions scattered in the utterances.
Another condition but in different emotion that we have faced is when in a red light. Before the countdown sign exists, to wait for the appearance of the color Green, people can be very annoyed to have to wait, especially under a hot situation, noisy with horns from every driver who is impatient and others making people, that can be stressful. This condition is different nowadays because almost all red light intersections are equipped with display Countdown numbers, we will be better prepared to wait patiently because there is certainly towards the final number which is “zero”. In exams during school times, even though there is no official countdown, we can feel so tense when the time approaches the end while there are still many questions that have not been worked on. Or when playing or watching a sports match… or when we have to wait for an answer to a love statement, or a marriage proposal?
Different again with an application called Deadline that spurs you to live healthy but in a terrible way. Yes, Deadline will count down the time of your death according to the quality of the health of the user’s body. Basically, Deadline can’t really predict the time of death. However, this application can translate HealthKit health sensor results on Apple devices into an algorithm calculation which ultimately results in a prediction of the duration of your life.
I have experienced several accidents while driving. One of the tense things is when I have to avoid the big truck coming from the opposite direction until my car then slides into a fairly steep ravine. I could see the tip, the limestone cliff with a steep ravine open. During the swift slide, in seconds, I felt I was shown what was going to happen, and I had been so resigned and sincere to facing death. Luckily a papaya tree stopped the car about three meters from the edge of the cliff. That, really like a final countdown to death for me.
The idea of this writing also reminds me of the title and lyrics of the song Megadeth – Countdown To Extinction which talks about extermination, also another song, The Final Countdown by Europe, which can be just talking about the adventures of love and how long it will last or more sci-fi themed that concerns the death of the Earth.
By the way, I wrote this theme related to the end of this 365 Photos Challenge. For some, this is a long commitment, but like some other friends, I did it and was determined to solve it. Yes, today I arrived at picture 362. Three more to arrive. Three to go!

I have been spared more than once, and glad so were you. Savoring our moments on this earth is what we all should be doing.
That is a comment with the best perspective on this post, LaJenna.
Awwww thank you Albert. Oh you just want an A+++++++++++++++++++ lol right? It is worth the grade!
Thanks a lot. But… May I ask at least two more +, please.
++ Now are you happy and one more+ Have a good day.
Thank you very much, my lovely teacher… May you have a great day too…
We need to enjoy each day, we do not know what is going to happen tomorrow
That’s the best way to live and enjoy life to the fullest.
Put your affairs in order and prepare for each day as though it is your last. There are no easy answers to the question of our own mortality except to simply say it happens to all of us. What we do with our lives is the legacy we leave.
Hmmm… I love this wise man.
Thanks, Albert. I was inspired today.
That! Another wise reason.
My dad used to always say inspiration is part luck and part perspiration!
You are a legacy of wisdom from your father!
Yes, with the future we have no idea, the best is to do our best and take one day at a time. Life can be differcult at times.
I totally agree, Pamela. Live and enjoy life seconds by second.
You are almost there Albert. Keep it between the lines, as they say, until you are done.
Yup! That’s exactly what I want to do, Carol. Thanks for your support.
3 more!! Wow… time flies!!
Tap three times your feet to the floor and a miracle will come!
Just a little friend, you’re every honor
You are truly a great friend, Lado. I feel very honored and grateful to have a friend like you.
I am also grateful for all your visits to my initial posts here that you have done.
With pleasure dear friend-I have a little time, I looked at your old posts-I will not comment on the old ones-how much time is with you? here it is 17.35
Are you there in the afternoon? At my place, this time is 12:08 AM.
It’s already a night friend, it’s already a theme-is it midnight?
Upz… At my place, 5:35 p.m. is the afternoon, there is still sun, before sunset. Or, did I misunderstand?
Meanwhile, when I typed this reply, the time showed 2:38 AM. In a few hours, the sun will rise.
My friend with us is now a topic at 16.30 in the afternoon – that means you are 6 hours ahead of us
Yes. I am clear about that, my friend. Thanks.
