    I recently was viewing someone else as Anakin Skywalker, become Darth Vader. I now see that it was my own reflection I saw.

    Past And Future

    I was just thinking about a true irony.  How come hindsight is 20/20 and foresight is clear as mud.  We can't change the past,  but we can see it clearly.   Yet we can't see the future, but we can change it by our actions.

     Things happen at most unexpected of times, when you're not searching you find what you're looking for.When you're alone and feel helpless and worthless suddenly you realize you're not.Complicated. Ironic.
