How is it that moments in time last so long? How can a moment from deep in my past occupy space in my heart still today? the notion that time is linear on a continuum is flawed and almost seems ridiculous. As Utah Phillips said when someone told him he always talked about the past, "I can go outside and pick up the oldest rock I can find and come in here and drop it on your foot. Now, the past didn't go anywhere, did it?!" No, the past didn't go anywhere. It is here, inside of us. Always.
