Ambitious Hermit (in progress)

This piece is about being caught in two senses of time and ultimately not being present in either one.  It is about someone who indulges in a memory or time that has past, yet is being pushed forward into the future by internal impulses and anxiety. It explores themes of grief, unrequited love, regret, stagnacy, ambition, anxiety and time. It is a desperate attempt to live within something good that no longer exists. He is a glutton for nostalgic love and dwells within an altered memory. Inside he feels the pressure to find something new and real to explore, but still clings to the safety of an idealized fantasy. He is torn between two times- an ambitious hermit.
