Let time travel be possible. I want to see my mother, my aunts and uncles, playing games in tobacco fields; eating home made biscuits on the living room floor. I want to skip ahead and get a glimpse of myself, all put together, all glowing with joy, memorizing lines on a television set; using advanced technology to send a message to my lover. I want to see happiness past and happiness to come. I want to do something other than this.
