The conversation that is difficult to have, the listening which does not come easily, the doing which takes an age, the tasks which are repetitive and monotonous, the passing of time, the effort to slow it down or capture it. Underlying this stuff of everyday life is the unspoken, uncommunicated and concealed nature of the evanescent background thoughts that accompany all our actions.
