At the end of a long life, one tends to live again the past and create in the unformed universe of the mind the fancied future, the present pushed deep into a dark and drafty corner. We know the past cannot be changed, and the future lies beyond our dreams, but all is possible if you’re a powerful magician, able to command the past and future at will.

If I were a magician
Blest with a magic wand
I’d have my choice of women
‘Cause I would be James Bond
If I had awesome powers
I’d fly right now to Mars
And climb aboard a comet
And dance among the stars
If I could have three wishes
A genie do my bid
I’d see my dad and mother
And be once more a kid
