Every bit of change that we ingest, like pushing toothpaste out of a tube, extends us farther in time – attenuates. For some of us, our dreams become real, and for others, our dreams become unrealistic, and then every once in a while we simply fall over a cliff of change into a different reality entirely – down the rabbit hole. In other words, it would seem that the steady process of change gives way to quantum leaps that actually result in enough accumulation of change to alter our reality drastically, causing us to pivot. I am talking about change inside.

Like an iceberg breaking up, a whole block of myself falls away and slides into the cold waters of Lethe to be forgotten. Suddenly I can’t remember it or it doesn’t really matter anymore. What’s the different?

When change reaches a certain critical mass, I lose the ability to monitor that change and begin to realize that “I” myself am changing. The train is leaving the station and suddenly I find myself on it. I am in play. Like an earthquake in slow motion, the very ground on which I stand (my point of view) itself is moving -- changing.

No longer just an observer, I lose any comfortable perspective and, like the proverbial “stranger in a strange land,” am thrust naked into a new world, with its own rules to learn. The experience, totally disorienting, is also so very fresh, like a snake shedding its skin or a phoenix arising from the flames.
