I have things in my head that I want to write here, but none of them are organized, articulate thoughts.

Guess that's why I have a piano. Attempt to communicate my impression of reality.

Perspective is everything. I try as hard as I can to keep mine above the fourth dimension, like looking down at a timeline. The obvious flaw in this approach (besides being impractical) is that I can't see anything ahead of where I am presently at, but the point is that detaching from the present makes things a lot more... bearable. Viewing events in context, as small marks on broader swaths of time, makes them less overwhelming.

Which isn't really related to the opening here. Unless you figure that everyone's so focused on the now, carpe diem before we die,
