Not Everything That Goes Around Comes Back Around

2014



The past builds us and breaks us, whether we choose it to or not, confronting us visions we hold on to or can’t shake from our hands. Like standing on the mirror of our past, our memories splinter beneath the weight, the cracks as evidence eating and spitting them out changed – our ever evolving truths. We remember the banality of those moments, while hindsight burdens us with their lasting impact: the choices we thought were perpetually ours to choose, the chance encounters we counted on reoccurring, the karma we thought owed to us… Time is a subtle teacher, reminding us that not everything that goes around comes back around.

In the spider web of infinite intertwined universes, quantum mechanics instructs us that any and all possibilities are realized in one universe or another. These are the moments when everything is open, when all options are present, and all is undecided – mere destinies unfolding. Our choices shift into one plane of existence, the extension of every path still available, until we pick the red tie instead of the blue; harbor anger instead of compassion; attempt to fix it or break it; and all our possibilities collapse into the singular of what is, rippling outward from the moment of decision to affect our lives in ways unknown… The noise at the back of our mind wondering anxiously, “What’s in store for me in the direction I don’t take?”
