Have you realized how time passes? Of course you have. You have probably been in one of those situations where you are so bored you look at your watch and the needles do not move at all, the day is never going to end. Then again, you've probably stood at your window smoking before, trying to remember if it was yesterday that the summer started, only to discover it's well past the 29th of July and there's only one more month to finish everything you started. fast, slow, that's not the point. The point is is that time actually passes. Yeah, I know it's a silly affirmation, but I do sometimes forget that it does. Sometimes I am so stuck that I cannot for the life of me remind myself this too shall be over. I forget that, whatever I do, no matter how hard I try or how complicated it all seems, one day I will wake up in the morning and I won't be there any longer. Then, I will look back and think about that period in kind of a fog, as if it were only a dream I had not really lived but existed in my imagination alone. It must be true what they say, that the past is nothing and the future is just a second away. Hard to believe, hard to see it from that perspective. In any case, do try to hold that past in your hands. Open them. They are empty. Time does not have a physical body. It does leave you with a thousand pictures you took so as never to let it go. But hey, are you that one smiling from before that sunset? Were you even there in reality? It's all smoke bound to be blown away when you next breathe deep.
