Who said that travelling had to be about space or time?
It’s not, not always. It’s sometimes those in-between spaces, those thoughts and the actions that don’t really count to anything on their own, apart from the fact that you tried them.

Maybe tomorrow you pick up a different type of cheese.
Maybe the day after tomorrow, you’ll stop thinking about dying all the time.
Maybe the day after the day after tomorrow, you’ll try some new alcoholic drink.
Maybe, one day, you won’t have any pain to numb.
