Longing ahead, looking back.
Shifting forward with a blast from the past
The past comes in and defines us
Either with a reaction or an interpretation
A memory of how to behave
I don’t want to be defined by looking back
It is now
It is in front of me
To shape these thorny thoughts into a form
A structure of sense
Too many images
Too many moments
What is this transition?
This changing landscape
The evolution of place
Maybe I need to go into the past to spring ahead
I am ahead
I am here
