Working it out ( draft copy )

 
 
Where do you start to draw the line between the past and the present because it seems to me that they are one and the same,
okay, that’s a leap but keep this in mind, the past is what has given us the details to put on the present’s blank page which we then fill up with what has passed.
 
I can live in those two tenses, but the vastness of the future is so immense and the feelings it invokes are so intense that it frightens me,
unless of course the future is the past we see at present,
 
it’s so easy to get bogged down in the minute by minute moments that we lose sight of and what has been and seen
or maybe that’s just the seams we sew.
 
Just so you know,
it’s only a side show,
the main event
starts in the big tent
where they encourage audience participation.
