Time Travelers…

A Time Traveler from the Past visited the Present, which was actually his Future. He looked at us with a sense of wide-eyed-wonder, and fear. He was from where we are from, but had no idea how we came to where we are, how we became who we are; better in so many ways, but more terrible in other ways.

He retreated to the Past, his Present, in fright.

A Time Traveler from the Future visited the Present, which was actually his Past. He shook his head at the silly way we treat each other. He was from where we are, but had forgotten how we were, who we were, who we are; more terrible in so many ways, but better in other ways.

He rushed back to the Future, which was his Present, with new found perspective; perspective that gave him hope for the intolerance he found in his Present, our Future, and a sense of compassion for those around him who seemed to be stuck in the ways of the Past, our Present.

He decided to travel from his Present, our Future, to his Future, our Very Distant Future. He looked at the Future with a sense of wide-eyed-wonder, and fear. It didn’t take long before he retreated to his Present, our Future, for security.
