Where is it, this present? It has melted in our grasp, fled ere we could touch it, gone in the instant of becoming. – William James

 As each present moment is remorselessly evacuated and deferred into the future, it opens up an empty space, an interval, that takes the place of a stable present. This potentially wasted space provides an opening to drift, to put the empty present to work not as a self-present identity or a self present body but as a drift. – Leo Charney ‘Empty Moments: Cinema, Modernity, and Drift’
