Presently I’m living the story. Documenting the story. Some day in some universe I may even attempt to write the whole story, right from the beginning of the time-traveling days. Some day when I learn to write. Until then, the above are just scattered sentences from my Journal of Impossible Things.
The wonderful time-traveler portrait by fellow time-traveler and Mad and Magic Charlene Winfred.

It is a mad, dark, weird, scary, strange – and wonderful and magic world out there. Onwards and forwards. So much to see.

  1. Quite a story this boy has. Good thing he has a journal of impossible things. All that tremendousness wouldn’t fit into anything less.

    And damn that’s a fine portrait of you. Whoever took it must have a fandme fantastisk camera!

  2. Life awaits in ambush. You never know. The great mystery – and great blessing – is how we seemingly stay one question behind “the” answer.
    Onwards and forward. Forever. Amin.
