I can feel somewhere in me a connection to who I used to be

So many years ago

I feel as though I know her, that girl I was, but not that I was her

Looking backward in time I know exactly who she was, even if she did not

If I presented myself to her back then, as I appear now, she would undoubtedly not recognise herself in me

I would not tell her anything as she has an absolute need to experience everything that made her into me

The advice I would give to that girl from so many years before, would be simple and small, just keep going, and that is all
