I am intrigued by the way our lives are shaped by the circumstances that we grow up in, forming the framework of our existence by providing both the safety net that protects us and the harness that restrains us.

Through social conditioning we grow to accept our situation as normal, and in our fear of challenging convention we surrender control over the path of our life.

It is only when we become aware that time is against us, and our time is up, that we reflect on all the decisions we made and all the things that we could have done.

When we think our time is up, we plead for more

to do things better

to do things again.

To exist is not enough

we must live the life that we choose

in the time that we have.
