Trapped in Time

I was thinking the other day again how people love to categorize others in order to begin to understand them better.

It helps people to have a place for you in their head, next to the others who are similar to you. You are my actor friend, right next to my painter friend but who both sit below my banker friend in this lovely organized head of mine.

But then I thought of how people not only love to categorize across contemporary space, but through time also. No one can evolve after you have already labeled them. That label has the capacity to pin them to the floor and capture them in time.
