  • I did this image above - PAST
    you are reading this explanation - PRESENT
    you will get a headache - (likely) FUTURE

    When I get fired for posting on cowbird all the time -- well that is a probability
    A MAYBE -- it might never "BE" in the future
    (God I am confused now)

    I resorted to brainy quotes
    I cringe at the thought
    (see below)

    My idea seems just too simple
    the past is the future - they are all in the same breath. The same heart beat.

    There is no way around it. You cannot get to the present without having lived the all the moments of the past. You can't get to the future without living as you "do."
    I think.


    The distinction between the past, present and future is only a stubbornly persistent
    illusion. --Albert Einstein
