Is the world getting away from us, and/or should we let it?

IMG_6648Found this statue in a public space while walking through Midtown the other day.  Not sure what the context is, but I’d prefer not to know, I think.  If you look at it one way, the cloaked figure is trying to hold on to the world as it rushes past.  If you look at it another way, the Earth is trying to escape from the grasp of this hooded figure.

It’s like one of those pictures with an image that’s a vase or two faces, or an old woman or a young woman, a rabbit or a duck.  I think I’d like to be able to change which one I see from day to day, from moment to moment.
