This photo showed up this morning on my Facebook feed, together with some others, including one of grapes that I had harvested (Note 1). The photos are a reminder of things, places, views, and emotions from October 2016. Not long ago, but still seemingly back in a remote past. Life unfolds at an increasingly break-neck speed. Things that were well-known and close only two years back suddenly seem far away. While traveling around the world, and living in two countries, may seem to make for an interesting life, there is another side to the story. It is difficult, if not impossible, to be two – not to mention more than two – places at the same time, mentally, that is, through remembrance of things past. Layers of experience packed on top of each other tend to dull earlier layers. I admit to not being able to recall the smell and taste of fall of two years back, and of those grapes that I harvested two years ago (I did not even recall the photos).
