Eternal

Eternity - warp tunnel that is perceptually experienced when memories anisotropically etched in the deep recesses of subconsciousness sometimes surface (just like ancient tombs of long lost civilisations that materialised with shifting wind and dune), triggering disorientation in time or in space.....or both .... manifesting in the pedestrian questioning his place in this world at this particular time - albeit temporarily (relatively speaking).

Some smart alecky scholar call this "Mid-life Crisis" .

This old photo of a nice form of Paphiopedilum callosum is from a series that brought me back to an era where my chums and I were care free and reckless. These days we are more measured, but we might be missing something ....

Don't worry it's just called getting older - it has its compensations too. Lovely photograph.
