Lately I've been looking at the world around me with a new sort of "pre-post-apocalyptic" eye.
An airplane flies over: "Wow, look at the amazing flying machines they used to have in the Before Times"
We get poke salad for dinner: "Wow, look at the bountiful fish harvests they used to feast on in the Before Times"
It's partly a way of preparing myself to say good-bye to all these things, partly a way of making everyday modern life seem magical.
