We all walk through life backwards

We all stand in the here and now, facing our past, seeing in detail recent events and we can strain to see further off the shapes of distant memories.

We stumble backwards, blind to future, only able to judge what is coming up based on the experience laid before us.

A new obstacle is a surprise and we stumble, but once past we can see it clearly and will be more ready for it next time.

Until at last we stop looking at our past and turn to face the unknown.
