If Only, Suomi

 If Only, Suomi is a love story through time.



At first thought, the difference between past, present and future may seem obvious. The past has happened, the present is now and the future has yet to come. Second by second, our future becomes our past.

That is if time is linear and we travel in a straight line.

But what if we could travel in time, so 2020 becomes your past, or your future? What if your future could become your past, or vice versa?

What if you could travel back and change your past to change the present and your future? Or what if you could travel forwards and change your past?

What if you went back in time and fell in love, then had to return to the present?

What sort of paradox would we create? How careful would one have to be to avoid even wiping oneself out of time altogether?

This is such a story, of how the future changed the past, when Al from 2028 travels back to 1972, just for a few days.

But this is not a science fiction story; it is a romance, based on dreams, for Al falls in love in 1972 and then has to return to 2028 without his beloved Suomi.

Can Al get a second life without changing anything!

Let us enjoy the present, for it is a gift.
