oh what fleeting moments I should capture, oh what memories I should still possess

a memory from another lifetime

Once upon a time I sold swimming pools in the family business. What I see is one of our finished pools. What I think is that, in the world I am growing up in, our lives are somewhat segmented. There are so many parts: so many jobs, so many relationships, so many places I've lived, so many different things I have done. There are so many people I have already been, and more are on the way.

.

It sometimes feels to me

as though I’m not living one life,

but an accumulation of separate lives.
