Again my eye seems to be drawn to how the past influences our present choices, or is reflected in them. Perhaps the pearl-encrusted little girl from the 19th century is the great-great grandmother of the mascara-laden, bejeweled diva. I have always had an "H.G. Wellsian"-fascination with the idea of time travel. What was life like for my anscestors, and if I was able to view them, would I see myself in any of their characteristics and mannerisms? Who knows maybe one day science, or supra-consciousness, will make it possible to do just this!
