    Now is now and now it's gone. The next now is just coming and passed at the same time. Now lasts only a flash of time and at the same time now is always.

    Now doesn't need explanation, it is self evident. The past and future confuse the issue.

    Yesterday is history.
    Tomorrow's a mystery.
    And today is a gift, that's why we call it 'the present'.


    (I'm sure everyone has heard that before, but I think it's cute, and I like it).
    Your kisses, sweeter than honey. But guess what, so is my money.

    Yes! An analogy: You are in a train, the train passes the landscape. The landscape circles around the sun. Your train stops at the station. There is another train, standing. Suddenly the other train starts, and for a fleeting moment you think it was your train that started. According to Einstein that possibility cannot be ruled either. We cannot say if A moves in relation to B or B in relation to A. Now is a movement or an object of movement. It can be either, never both.

    It will never be, and never was... and yet, it is.

    Live in the now and you'll never know tomorrow.
