Goodbye Steven Klein

Last week was my final week working for Steven Klein. Its the end of the season, batteries need to be recharged and I am moving nervously back to London to begin my Masters.  Its been an intense time, regularly working 16 hour days with the publications American Vogue, Italian Vogue and W Magazine shooting the likes of Lara Stone, Uma Thurman, Rihanna and Daphne Guiness. I can finally rest and await the published results over the coming months. Joe Lalli, who can only be described as Steven's Creative Director / visionary / man behind the man sent me a beautiful piece of writing as a departure gift..... THE PAST.........
You can literally change the past by altering your perception of it. 

The past has no effect except by its influence on the present. By 
changing the past that exists in your consciousness, you alter its 
connection to the present reality. Time does not exist, it is an 
illusion, so by “going back” in what we call “time” and changing your 
thoughts, you will influence what you are experiencing in the Now. 
Your present reality is literally influenced by your thoughts of the 
past.
We can change our past by altering our memory of it. When we change 
the way we think about what happened, we tap into an alternate past 
timeline where the way we imagine it to be really did happen that way. 
The alternate past timeline leads to certain things that would have 
happened in our alternate present reality. Therefore this reality 
manipulation with consciousness would result in synchronicities 
occurring in the present or near future of our actual timeline, as it 
merges with an alternate one.
By changing the way you perceive the past, you will also change the 
way others perceive the past. Your change in consciousness will also 
result in a change in their consciousness. Your merger of an alternate 
reality will cause a merger in their reality. Something may have 
happened in the past which you perceived in a negative way. But if you 
choose now to perceive what happened in a positive way or to perceive 
what’s positive in it, other people’s perception of it will also be 
changed in the present.
Changing perception of the past is literally changing the past itself, 
together with the memory of it. Reality is held by awareness. One 
thing in memory is associated with another. When you change your 
perception of something about the past, you will change everything 
else that is associated with it that everyone is unaware of. Those 
things that people are unaware of are open for temporal alteration. 
Any kind of medium that records the past will also reflect a change in 
its recording.
