A petrified whirl of lime leaves during a summer's breeze. In the leaves, the coming years are cut out as holes occurring during the fall. 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2006, 2009, 2012, 2020, 2035… As seasons change, we are constantly confronted with our inability to foresee the future, at least for more than 3 years ahead. With increasing time ahead, we are left to deal with the forces of abstraction and chance as our perimeters.
