Spring break-up on the Ottawa River - rushing water which appears both flowing and constant, ephemeral and eternal - punctuates the endless passage of time. In the passage of a human life, momentary sensations break through, felt and remembered in bodies. How is a life lived? How the time does pass.

“The self is an act of cartography and every life a study of borders. The moment of conception is a barrier surpassed, birth a boundary crossed. There is only one way into life and one way out…what we hope for is safe passage between these two fixed boundaries. to be able to make something of being alive before we are required to stop being alive.” “Where on Earth Are You” by Frances Stoner Saunders
