      This morning I’m here, not yet there. By tomorrow morning, I’ll be there, not here. For a time that seems not long enough, yet is the only length of time I dare be away. And I’ll be by myself, not with the man who’s been my travel partner for nearly 23 years. There were a lot of trips abroad, mostly to Switzerland, so I do know my way. Do not stand at my grave and weep I am not there. I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow. I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain. I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning's hush I am the swift uplifting rush Of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the soft stars that shine at night/5.

    Steve is haunted by his past as every object in his home, every sound he hears reminds him of a specific event in his life. Steve connects the events of his life to discover how he ended up alone 38%. Adriana Caicedo Hart, Indian Trail, NC. I was born in Colombia, I came to USA in My physical features, my accent and my skin color say I am not born in American, they say I belong to a different culture; but when I go back to my home country for a visit, I find myself not fitting anymore, even though I have kept my cultural values, it is hard to act like I used to.

    I'm here, I'm not here. There's nothing that I know for sure. You're here, you're not here. How long can this all go on for? Live inside a dream, but we're all on the same team. We will all agree there's things we don't know. Live inside a dream, but we're all trying to reach We're all trying to see those things we don't know. I'm here, I'm not.   “I’m Not Here” makes reference to Schrödinger’s cat, which was simultaneously alive and not alive until ng “I’m Not Here” doesn’t bring it to life as a movie, any.
