I chose an hour glass for my visual metaphor because you have to love something while you have it because it can dissapear in one second. Like when the last grain falls, that is when it disappears and your time with it is up.
Another metaphor for this would be a cloud because they are only in the sky for a small amout of time. They are beautiful but the next day they are gone with the wind
I chose this for my theme because my dog that I had named Cooper and we had to put him down and I wish I had loved him more while he was still here.
