I like this, I guess in your pic the wood saw is just supposed to mean the snoring,
but it reminded me of an expression we have in Romanian about someone sleeping
like a log and not easy to wake up; we say that "you can chop wood on him/her"
(literal translation).

pitulush, the image of sawing logs is common in American cartoons for someone who is asleep and snoring.

"One can try to define « time » without any language, for example, by using analogies, metaphors, pictures – but this is risky, like the river analogy. There is no “speed of time”: “time” differenciated according to… “time”, therefore problem. There is no “speed of time”, despite what is commonly said in physics/relativity."

The moving finger writes
and, having writ,
moves on.
Nor all your piety nor wit
can make it cancel
half a line,
nor all your tears
wash out one word of it.
"The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam"



Or, the famous mis-quote
The moving finger writes
and, having writ,
moves on
to write another bit.
