Looking at the photos I took now reminds me how we are adept at putting chains around just about anything. And also how we are adept at finding ways past the chains. The whole of this particular activity – the chaining and the unchaining, as it were – takes place across time.
Call it Time. We're not great at taking into account Time. But when I look at the photos again, I can see how Time is clearly a factor there.
What if each of Time's manifestations is somehow unique?
What if it isn't?
The gate drew me like a magnet.
