Sun through the trees

"The present gives us simultaneously the illusion that is exceptional and the illusion that it is eternal. Of course it is neither of these, but rather a recurrent and usually minor ambush of space and time where, like it or not, we must close ranks and fight. It teaches us nothing of importance, except that its grime and confusion are the fabric of living time; that no analysis of past time or projection of future time should ignore its prying demands and grudging allowances."

-Robert Grudin, from Time and the Art of Living
