I’m at a social gathering when I am drawn to an elderly woman with white hair and a soft wrinkled face. As we talk, I am impressed by her quiet knowledge — she is clearly scholarly and well-read. I wonder about her history. Was she a professor? She looks at me with a shy smile, asking “Don’t you remember me? I’m Eugenia. You used to babysit me.” What?!
Although I don’t remember her, this explains my affinity for her — we have an old bond. But if I babysat for her when she was a child and I was a teen, how can she look so much older than I am? And might I have been the one who led her to so love books, by reading to her?
I wake up full of curiosity. Why did this woman come to me? I play with her name, which is the feminine form of Eugene or Gene. Is there something here about genes or genetics, that reading is “in our blood”? What interests me most is the attraction I feel for her, like a beloved grandmother, yet our roles seem reversed, since I was the babysitter for her. This leads me to think about time travel, and about both time and age being fluid.
