Although time is objectively ordered, and our perception of it is synchronized with the flow of standard temporal units like minutes, days, months, and years, each of us has a personal inner chronometer that influences the temporal nature of our existence. This internal clockwork has the power to hasten, slow, or even halt our perception of time's passage, resulting in a unique experience for each individual. Indeed, what remains an event of a minute to one person may feel like an eternity to another, and vice versa. However, despite the multiplicity of experiences, certain aspects of time are universally felt - it stretches during moments of sorrow and flies during moments of joy. Thus, the intervention delves into this subjective yet collectively shared aspect of time. It serves as a poignant reminder that despite society's efforts to schedule and control time, certain life events transcend temporal boundaries. Ultimately, is there a measure of happiness and despair?
