Time is a curious thing. Sometimes it flies and sometimes it seems to stand still, depending on what you’re willing it to do. That doesn’t mean that we can control how we perceive time, no, it only means that it usually does the opposite of what we want. If we want time to pass quickly, we are bored and it seems even longer. And if we want to hold on to a moment the more the moment just slips through our fingers. It mocks us. And that’s why we always attempt to control it anyway: Just because we can’t.

  1. So true!!! When you’ re done with your year you will have a fabulous coffee table album with the the vignettes of words which are perfectly matched to the images. I look forward as much to the photos as I do to read what they’ ve inspired you to write. Finish the tango phd and throw yourself into photography and writing full time.
