Safely indoors,

Lifetimes sweep before us

Full of paradox, contradiction,

Curiosity, absurdity,

Overwhelming beauty,

Fears lurking, kept at bay

By trusted friends.

A world with no time

Experiences moving breakneck speed

Immersing us in a single moment.

We head back.

Change not creeping now,


Note & Extra:

* The map in Short Memory #288 shows you where we had to walk though one of the streets is now no longer there. It was parallel to Reserve St and about 80m to the South of Reserve. A short street (can’t recall the name – someone help me) joining Station & Woodriffe Streets. Our path (I think) was west along Derby until Woodriffe, south along Woodriffe until the missing street, west along that one until Station St and then the 50-60m to my place at 138. The return walk followed the same route but …
