I am a collage of the old and the new.Like a breathing failure, no one notices me, until I fail.I am fragile. I fade with time.I get edited, and rewritten.I am fabricated, like a memoir.More fabricated I am, the more trustworthy I become.

A time traveller

Musafir,a wanderer,not certain where to go,no travails to face,nothing to accomplish,experiences time as it pleases,like Janus,sees the beginnings and the endin the same frame of time,and vista of vision.
