The Four Locations of Time

Inspired by the four locations in Northrop Frye’s book Words with Power. Basically, he envisioned these four mythic locations for literature: the Garden, the Furnace, the Cave and the Mountain.  Here I tried to trace the trace of Time in our lives with four metaphorical images/locations. So during your lifetime your Time may flow to different places….
