“Slowing Time” / Memorable Fancies #2809

["look I will set to work / this very moment slowing time myself" - Glyn Maxwell] I have slowed time. People move more slowly now.

“My Existence” / Memorable Fancies #2804

[“...this difficulty in attaining any certainty about others’ existence” – Michel Foucault] Yes, I suppose others do exist – after a fashion – but it’s not the same kind of existence I have. ‘Me’ is not some extraneous aspect of my life, it’s life itself.
