“Still, there are times I am bewildered by each mile I have traveled, each meal I have eaten, each person I have known, each room in which I have slept. As ordinary as it all appears, there are times when it is beyond my imagination.”

~Jhumpa Lahiri, Interpreter of Maladies

Do you ever get sideswiped by the idea that you only exist in the moment and all your past experiences actually happened to someone else that is only related to you by the compulsion of imagination?
