Between Ellipsism & Enouement


(n) A sadness that you’ll never be able to know how history will turn out.


(n) The bittersweetness of having arrived in the future, seeing how things turn out, but not being able to tell your past self.



  1. I take away from your title,a dilemma. Life doesn’t offer a rewind or pause button as one has in the movies. If life was like a movie, you could go back and edit or re-work the story. Makes me also think of illusion verses reality and how you can never reclaim the exact moment. The good news seems to me to be in relishing each moment since you can’t retrieve it. Also truly living in it so as not to regret it. Does that make sense? Anyway, I like what you’ve done here – digesting a few words that can be so multifaceted for reflection. Best. Chevvy

    1. ..nor a fast forward button either! Yes, you’re absolutely right in your reading and I (we?) swing back & forth between the past and the future, not quite relishing the present. Thanks, as always, Chevvy! Take care!

  2. Wow…amazing words that will be added to my vocabulary. And the wisdom to be drawn from where these 2 words “meet?” Live in the present moment….and embrace it fully, that is the only “Time” there is and the only reality on this earth…! Thank you my friend. 🙂
