Missing Now captures the sense of anticipatory nostalgia – feeling yourself missing the present from the future. The sentiment of the fleeting present reflects the swift vanishing trait of language. The intrinsic work of crafting the words into the vulnerable physical form from the original writing, parallels the process that verbal and written language always seems to be chasing the original idea and spirit. It laboriously polishes itself to achieve its aura in closest possible form.
