If I wasn’t a girl… Would you like me anyway?
I suppose so.

You’re getting older, and you’ll see that life isn’t like your fairy tales. The world is a cruel place. And you’ll learn that, even if it hurts. - El laberinto del fauno / Pan’s Labyrinth  (2006, dir. Guillermo del Toro)

From the moment we enter this life, we are in the flow of it (the time). We measure it and we mark it, but we cannot defy it. We cannot even speed it up or slow it down. Or can we? Have we not each experienced the sensation… that a beautiful moment seemed to pass too quickly… and wished that we could make it linger? Or felt time slow on a dull day… and wished that we could speed things up a bit?
