I am not exactly sure when I knew I would in fact live forever. Oh, not in the same body of course. “Reincarnation” I thought to myself, “yeah that’s the ticket.”

As for this body I feel like I have a responsibility to keep it in reasonably good shape and healthy and so I behave myself and treat others kindly so then I can sideslip Karma and have an even better life in my next life. What defines better? Trying different things; this life I seem to be focused on The Arts; music, writing, Playwright, stand up comedy, painting, sculpture and a stint as an Impresario.

Do I sometimes feel like I’ve met others in a previous time, a previous life? Yes. I was lucky enough to ride up the old World Trade center elevator once with Cameron Diaz where I tried to convince her that we were married to each other in a previous life (no really) but she could not remember. Her loss.

Knowing I have been here before, that I am here now and I will be here again has made me a very patient man.

  1. Laurie Levy says:

    Thanks for sharing a different perspective on this prompt.

  2. Suzy says:

    A very different way to look at time, thanks, Kevin. And you found the perfect cartoon to go with it, but maybe you’ve been saving that for a long time.

    Do you know Steve and Carol Bowman, who have done a lot of work on reincarnation? Steve was a college classmate of mine.

  3. Khati Hendry says:

    True, we are all star dust who knows where “we” have been and will go? But did you really give that line to Cameron Diaz? You are an artist for sure.

  4. Betsy Pfau says:

    Thanks for a different take on time than the rest of us wrote; one of a spiritual nature, using a bit of humor (too bad about Cameron Diaz) to make your point. Always a good idea to take care of your current vessel, to be a good, kind person, no matter what awaits us in the next go around. I think you will benefit in your current life as well.

  5. Marian says:

    Love your attitude, Kevin, as long as the Karma isn’t too bad and the future lives don’t end up as in the “Groundhog Day” movie.

  6. You’ve indeed given us a different take on the passage of time Kevin!

    If I’m ever reincarnated I hope it will be during a less interesting time!
