Man, were we really doing some documenting a year ago. I look at all these though, and it seems like no time at all has passed; the images take me right back to the moments. And yet to my eyes I actually look much younger — so much had not yet happened to me. So many adventures ahead of me! Time is such a strange thing. The way it goes so fast and yet so slow, is measured out so precisely and yet is so ungraspable. A year ago I had no idea what the future would look like — where in the world I would live or work or go to school — and now somehow I’ve realized that I’ll never know anything for sure, and that makes me so much less worried about it all. Things will be difficult, things will be easy; overall, though, life is going to be ok. I don’t know where this resolve has sprung from — I only know I haven’t had it the past, and all that worry never made anything better or easier.
