I watched photos of

another time—seeing 

ordinary people with

ordinary lives go their 

ordinary ways in a world

of long ago forgotten 

in its grey ordinariness.


I thought how I might

have been in such a time

and what would have been 

my thoughts in such ordinary 

living of long ago when the 

world was not as it is now

in this extraordinary time.


But then again one day

another being much like me

will look at photos of my

extraordinary time and 

wonder what it would have 

been like to live in this 

ordinary time of long ago.
