I think that I have learned my final lesson from my travels in time. I have even gone one step further than my father did [the father having told his son that the father used time travel to go back to the start of each day, and to live it over again, and thus to realize, for each day he has lived, how wonderful it is to be alive].
The truth is I now don't travel back at all, not even for the day. I just try to live every day as if I have deliberately come back to this one day to enjoy it as if it were the full final day of my extraordinary, ordinary life.
Just think of it! How magical it truly is.Yesterday I was a caterpillar!
And today, how glorious it is to be alive, as we most mysteriously are!
