Notes on this piece

The Fiction of Time Destroyed was written in homage to a dear friend, whose time came too soon. Despite having only known him in recent years, having only met him on few but truly uplifting occasions, and despite his un- timely death, I feel as though I must have known this person in a previous life — and can only hope we’ll meet again in some future existence. In the aftermath, therefore, I’m left with a feeling of sudden loss and with plenty of questions relating to time. There are many unforgettable traits to remember him by, but my immediate feeling of urgency could only be absolved by taking seriously this question of time and its perceived linearity. This piece is simultaneously a remembrance and, for me, an expression of hope that I may find resolution in the mystery.

The piece’s Spanish title (“Desbaratada la Ficción del Tiempo“) is a line from one of my favorite poems by Jorge Luis Borges, Amorosa anticipación, calling to mind my friend’s spouse, who I keep in my thoughts these days.
