    The Answer has reemerged from the depths and wants all of you off topic zoners to think about now.....and then:



    Now and then.......you see farther than usual.....the scope of your vision widens both outside and within.....you see the future like distant planets you'll never get to.....and yourself, like a spring, all coiled up inside that skin..... all twisted and compressed and dying to break through.

    You can supress the urge........you can find ways to make yourself forget the fact.........but no matter what you do at some point, it always comes back.

    Now and then.....like some storybook transition......the catchphrase of quiet desperation that so many lives echo with.

    The stars move....the clouds stiffen......ambling forward with time's insipid progression......branded like cattle......herded as diminutive sheep.....from one corral to the next.......childhood, adolescence, adulthood, marraige, children, then retirement......the worn out plateaus in life's vapid descent.

    Now and then you notice someone besides yourself......besides your family and friends.....you don't think too much about it, but you do wonder whether they noticed you.

    When everything and everyone starts to look the same, the only you have left to want is to find something new.....Now and Then.
