There is an internal clock that corresponds to external time. When a rhythm goes "tick, tick, tick ..." our internal clock knows when to go boom.
Some days my internal clock is wound quite tight and fast. And the "tick, tick, tick" of the outside world feels so very, very slow.
Those days I am highly irritable. The rhythm feels off.
Phantom ticks make me go boom.
When I care enough: I unwind that clock by physically turning the opposite of the wind. And tapping to a steady beat, letting myself stay at a constant rhythm.
It finds the ticks I want to sync too.
