We envision time as linear.
I have a photo file that stretches back to when I was fifteen.
The file is a tightrope, a high wire.
The are multiple ways to fall. One involves falling into the wire, being mesmerized by potatoes, looking too deeply at times and people gone by.
Jimi Hendrix sang I dont live today.
But everyone else does.
I cant talk to people in the past.
The past doesnt sustain.
Watching the watch, mistakes were made.
