The Future Is Now

September 10, 2023 life

As I look out
on the city before me,
in this year of 2023
(a year of the wildest dreams
of my distant youth),
I see the present - a future
we could never have imagined.

The river of time does not flow
along the stream of our imaginings;
it winds through a myriad of dimensions
our linear minds will never follow.

Perhaps it is not our job to navigate,
but instead, to witness in each moment
the wonderment of the ride.
