Seriously hilary

Lena

I want to be more aware of passing time. A year flies past as if it was a month… Four years, five years… whoosh…

When I was in school each year seemed like a century. Time went by so slowly and each new year was clearly outlined and defined by a class title and new teachers and separated by exams and summer holidays.

In ‘grown-up’ life the years have no boundaries, the weeks go on and on and it is difficult to differentiate one year from another in your memory.

But for Lena… the passing of time is still a tangable concept…
