Monday Aphorism: The Essential Self

Looking at the photographs which were taken of that

      person who I am

who I call… Myself

I see an identifiable person: Me.


I was and I am

each yesterday; every now.


How have I changed: which visages gone,

Which remain?

Do I see

The same person I am, now?


Who was; who now?

Where will the next place be?

How will I get there?

How will I know

I have arrived?


What lost

Given up, gained

…what cost?


Aphorism from chapter in Next Places
