I used to think the best way to pay homage to a moment was to recreate it. A memory with a friend, a trip with my family, even a song. These days, I think the best way to grant a moment its respect is to simply acknowledge that some feelings, some places, some times can simply not be recreated; instead, we should appreciate them while they’re here, and nod our caps when they pass.
Still, time keeps moving.
-a poem, of sorts.
