As far as PM could recall, life has always been a one-way street. This sometimes works to an advantage, sometimes not really so, but it has always been the case. The girl always walked forward. The girl never looked back.
And why not? After all, “No glass ever became sand again; No bread ever became wheat; No ripened fruit ever became a flower.”
There is no such thing as “going back to the way we were.”
Admit it or not, life just keeps on moving forward.
