The Shadow of the Future

I am tethered to it, no matter how remote it seems, no matter how impossible. 

Connected, every part of me, by delicate threads. Each movement ripples away behind the veil of time. It's not opaque. I can see shadows and light dancing across the surface.

I move and the shadows move, I get hints of how they connect. 

It's not always perfect, I can't control everything, but the way I move, it moves like me, I can control this. I am responsible for this. 

It's only half mysterious. It starts it's life here, today, right now.
