Right now it is Tuesday, 31 May 2022, 1:51 A.M. PDT in the Puget Sound region in the U.S.A. Due to some slow typing, errors and the run of time itself it is now 1:54, but all the other conditions are the same. Several months will pass before this is read on a Sunday morning. And, as always, people such as I, will operate on the assumption that the world will still be here and everyone we know is still in it in the relatively near future.
It’s now 1:56 and I feel the point that I was trying to make slipping away. Atomizing into the ether. It had something to do with the nature of time and our taking certain things for granted. Eyesight for example. Anyway, it is probably better that I step aside at 1:58 and turn you over to Tobias Haglund, one of the original Editors of this site. His Retinitis Pigmentosa is a fine story and it, in its own way, keeps time because Tobias knows that taking things for granted is eternal.
