Past or Future?

As I gazed into the depths of the forest, I took a few moments to enjoy the beauty around me.

I’ve not been here before or have I?  You know, I don’t recall and perhaps, my memory has dimmed or failed me.  Encompassing me are feelings of anxiousness and fear! My thoughts are blurred and confused.

My curiosity is running wild and I even have goosebumps on my arms. My knees are weak and jittery and I feel frozen in time.

But, when in time?  Was, or is my presence in a different life form?  Am I living in reality now or was I living in reality then?

Was I a cat with beautiful golden eyes and black luxurious fur?  And I ruled the forest with my aloofness and persnickety ways.  My days wiled away chasing leaves that swirl through the trees and my endless search for a treasured ray of sunshine.  Oh, what a glorious life!  Could it have been me?

As I gaze into the woods, am I looking into the past or am I looking into the future?

  1. The description is so vivid. Perhaps, we are living both the past and future in the present moment.
