Grandfather Clock

Just like the nutcracker clock. Not wound so it doesn’t tick all night, but at eight feet tall the clock is an imposing presence. Age and height and the large weathered face give the clock personhood. My grandfather died when I was five so the clock  became a holder of the household spirit and an ancestor.
