No Name


Have you ever noticed how we compartmentalize our lives, separating the years into distinctive blocks of time with concrete beginnings and endings. At first, all the blocks are separated by our age, or school grade. Then by the major life events….marriage, birth of a child, death of a parent. Gradually, the beginnings and endings of our blocks become more subtle and we usually don’t mark them as beginnings or endings till years after they occurred.

Sometimes, very rarely, and usually with nothing but a feeling, we know the minute we open our eyes that everything has changed.

  8. “When you dream there are no rules. People can fly. Anything can happen. Sometimes there’s a moment as you’re waking and you become aware of the real world around you, but you are still dreaming. You may think you can fly but you better not try.”- KaliforniaNice work Elaine
