Ici, maintenant

by Sofia

I experience time differently now and it does not worry me. I feel disconnected from the past and the future because I am wholly involved in the present. It is a bubble surrounding me that takes me forward, moving through spaces and moments, constantly evolving but not recording as in a movie. All is fluid. All is consumed only in the moment it exists—and so documentation for the sake of posterity seems interesting but ultimately silly, or frivolous. I am thinking, moving, growing, but not linearly. I get the sense that this is how time passes without us realizing we are growing older. And how I will feel at every other point during my life—suspended in the present; timeless; eternal; infinite; connected.
