time is funny. sometimes, maybe once every four months, i get a really strong sense of deja vu. today it happened when i was helping a kid who drives everyone else in the class crazy, and he was listening and caring about his work for this brief sliver of time. the last time i had deja vu like that was when we were all camping at Easter time, sitting around the table having dinner, and i got the feeling that i was making an important connection with someone there on that camp. i didn't know who it might be, but now i think i do.

i don't believe in astrology, at least the way they do it now, or fortunes or anything like that. but there is something real in those feelings that catch you by surprise when you are immersed in ordinary life. it's like revisiting a moment when you are only just living it for the first time, and even if it doesn't mean anything, at least for that second you know that you are where you are supposed to be.
