Thank you very much for your postcard. I think time is real, but I’m not sure whether it comes from the outside world, or inside us. My book (Metaphysics as a Guide to Morals) explores Kant’s idea that time is a human intuition, like morality. I think each of us has a private, personal spacetime.
My novel The Time of the Angels explores this idea. It shows how the processes of loving & hating take time, & how our relationships can change over time. In one passage, I compare a kiss to the rise of spring.
With best wishes, Iris
