“Sands shifting, sifting, through time, it moves through my fingers, it moves through space, it sifts and changes. Never remaining the same.
Shape shifting.
Shadows moving sifting across the plain. Mirages form and disappear. They come and they go. Who are they these shadows, that pass in front of our watching eyes. They are not from this world, and yet they are telling us of a story. Of time, of time that is not familiar to us. We are sifting, shifting, we are changing, here we are now…”

and live like its heaven on earth.”
