#TheOrdinaryMoments – Time Trap

I never for a moment thought that I’d post a picture of myself wearing a medical mask as an ‘ordinary moment’ yet that’s exactly what this has become … the new ordinary.

#TheOrdinaryMoments - Time Trap

We were sat watching Back To The Future II today, the one where they travel to 2015 (or what they class to be the future). My son J was avidly comparing all the things that the film had predicted that we might have (such as self-tieing shoelaces, food hydration units and hoverboards) to what is our current reality.

Having quite rightly pointed out that flying cars haven’t as of yet materialised, J then said: “Imagine if they had travelled to 2020”… I can only imagine that they’d take one look at the mess we are all in and jump straight back into the Delorian and head straight back to 1985…

I remember bringing in the new year of 2020 with hope for a good year ahead, little did I know that my life would quite literally fall to pieces bit by bit whilst the World followed suit.

I can only hope that things get better with time. Although I’m somewhat doubtful as I’ve been assured time and time again that ‘time’ is apparently some sort of healer, yet I disagree entirely.

In my eyes time is much like a funnel – we whirl around and around for what feels like forever until we are eventually sucked through some sort of spout and … then what? Where do we go? I wonder …

I wish time travel were a real thing as it could save a lot of heartache and more importantly save a lot of lives.

If there’s one thing we can never get back – it’s time, yet time is quite literally all that we have.

Thanks for reading. I look forward to catching up with your #TheOrdinaryMoments posts either through your own posts or comments upon this post.

    I wonder about this a lot, but I am not sure time travel for saving a lot of lives would be ethical. I know we would try, but I do think destiny is set xx
