Past, present, future… everything co-exists as a book which pages stack within a discrete volume, within this same envelope of red cells and bones.
The past sediments itself in black and white, handwritten in italic letters over yellowed pages.
The future, that section of the book that mistakenly seems to be blank, shows its appearance as if without signs or clues, with millions of possibilities. With uncertainties. With decisions that await to be taken. It’s the dimension of the dreams.
The present is the dimension of the senses. It has sounds, form, and dresses itself in bright colors. It is heard, sang, spoken. Walked. It is action. And you can only live in the present by perceiving. By moving. By doing.
Yet it all is close to the center. It is a unit. You are your past as you are your future. You own the memories and the flavors of all that is already written as you own the images that you want to be stamped on those parallel blank pages. As you own the messages of the woman or the man that you will be and that whispers the decisions that you need to make.. today.
