Time is a recurring theme for me. As a boy I had a mirror on my bedroom wall, occasionally I would write in pencil on the wooded panelled back, a date, hour of the day to the minute, and a few words about life. Each entry was to my future self, ‘how is life in the future?’ I’d ask. Then months or even years came and went till I next replied, ‘Weather’s ok, long day at school, detention, looking forward to summer. Are you still in Elm Drive?”
I still own the mirror, packed away in a storage unit in England. The last entry I made on it was this past year.
It’s reverse is a lifetime of conversation with myself and it’s where I meet the boy and the man to come. I’m fascinated by them, and maybe, them by me.
