Really, that was just yesterday that I saw the space station in the early morning sky? And I wondered. And I had my closest connection to fellow humans in quite some while.

Really, that was ten years ago that I had a life and hope of better to come? And I had a family and friends – now as long gone away as yesterday.

Time, meaningless.

You’ve got all this really great stuff that you keep on a shelf, in a cupboard, drawer or box, tucked away, waiting for the right time to use. Because, surely, the right time isn’t here and now – your great stuff is way too awesome for this shithole, this current malaise. Right?

But what if this is as good as it gets for the rest of your life? What if you die before you utilize your great stuff? What if your great stuff decays before your life improves? … Nay, I say, embrace it now, enjoy it while you can – before the moths get your clothes or the worms your flesh. 

Yes, so you say. But do you live it? I see you, a man-child, an aging Chilean kid, still wearing trackpants and determinedly tucking your t-shirt in. And, you know what, I like it.
