wh[o][y][at][ere][en]&how by Isaac Newton

I am forgetting the past, living in the present and finding my way to the future.

You would think that being from the future I would have all the answers. Unfortunately not remembering anything before I arrived here, all I have are questions. I’ll keep asking who, why, what, where, when and how until I get some answers. What else can I do? I am forgetting the past, living in the present and finding my way . . .

BAD INFLUENCES

Subtle, clever, thoughtful, and surprising

By Fiona Gregory, editor
