‘The distinction between past, present and future is merely a stubbornly persistent illusion.’
‘Quick now, here, now, always –
A condition of complete simplicity
(Costing not less than everything)’
T. S. Eliot, Four Quartets
If the distinction
between past, present and future
is nothing but an illusion,
then even back then, we contained within us
the person we are today.
We’ve had all of our tomorrows;
we’re still living our yesterdays –
and everything, everything, everything
is happening here, now, and always.
