From Dr. Larry

Dr. Larry Gelman is fiercely devoted to each client, with a deep and profound respect for their own self-agency and self-determination.

"Time Heals" Absolutely Nothing!

It is said that “time heals all wounds...”

But I know that “time heals” absolutely nothing!

Time is a very clever hypothetical construct.

It can be defined in a great many ways...

But it must not be defined in all ways.

There is a certain palpable relativity...

To the absoluteness of the construct.

If you think about it a little bit...

I think you will see, perhaps,

A little bit of what I mean.

Because what passes with the passage of time...

Is just time!

That is to say,

Time passes with the passage of time!

But time, per se,

Is only a hypothetical construct...

And its length, per se,

Only a relative unit of temporal measure.

No matter how much I might wish it to the contrary...

I cannot ascertain any intrinsic medicinal powers...

To either time or its units of measure ...

Because the only time “time heals...”

Is when ’something’ is done...

During the passage of that time.

Absent that relevant ’something'...

And no matter the quality or length of time...

The one everything I am almost absolutely certain...

Is that “time heals” absolutely nothing!
