Putting Time In Perspective - UPDATED

It’s not our fault—the spans of time in human history, and even more so in natural history, are so vast compared to the span of our life and recent history that it’s almost impossible to get a handle on it.

Blouses, knee high socks or stockings and headdresses are also worn.[2] Lolita fashion has evolved into several different sub-styles and has a subculture that is present in many parts of the world. 346278842_88e7d0bb9c_o.jpg.
