Thus was marked the beginning…

Long, long ago, the humans prayed: "we know we will die, but please, would that we could know before we do." The Fates, who had spun, measured, and cut so many threads before, made the humans a creature to teach them how to measure their lives: and so they spun a spider and measured its thread, and it was cut to be a timekeeper.

An 8-page story about the genesis of time-keeping, based on Greek mythology.
