The challenge?

Time travel.

Back, of course.

But back to when?

Possibilities overwhelm me,

Yet Trifecta’s clock relentlessly counts down.

Turning the present into even more past.

Nonplussed,

I travel to the future.

  3. I get the same indecision when we decide to go on a journey, and we can only go in one direction. Nice one. (RogRites)

  6. Time is a moving target with the present becoming the past the moment we even think of it. Add in the pressure of the challenge countdown clock, and I'd say travel to the future was a smart move :)

  7. Loved your take on this prompt. If we could time travel, which way would we choose? Who knows, eh? Well done. Loved the little bit of humour and, as always, the heart of the piece shines through :)))

  8. And why not?! We already know what's in the past, right? ;)

  9. I am sure it would be much easier to travel ahead than to chose a moment in the past.

  14. Future may be more interesting than getting bogged down in old history.

    Excellent.

  15. And ...we all travel to the future! LOL. Hey how about traveling over to Utah some time soon and visiting me some day. You are only about 15 hours away???? hahahahaha. (so don't talk about travel unless you are going to do it, my sweet.)

    I didn't realize Trifecta did a weekend challenge. You learn something new every day.
