The start of time
Time has been on my mind; in some shape or other I have been playing hide and go seek with it for a while; but now we have finally come face to face, and I'm finding the courage within me to delve in it more seriously. I chase it, it chases me; it shows me a glimpse of my fragility; my past sneaks up into my present; I can't stand still in the present and yet the future is unknown; and my life continues ticking away. Complex relationship; and how am I to understand and improve this relationship without knowing what I think of time to begin with? And so, with the winter solstice and shab-e Yalda celebrations behind us, only a few days of 2011 remaining, and the recent completion of another chapter of my life, I will be spending the next while more intimately with time, with the hopes that in turn time will be on my side, allowing me to represent it.
