The ticket - as an official document - very often has date on it. The bulk of these dates enrich the countable endless group of non-remarkable dates. Even with the ticket they occur on they can palely recall only the small piece of the past - the past when they had served their purpose, when they were validated. Still merely the fact that they are there, they are readable and sometimes with conscientious accuracy - year, month, day, hour, minute - they mark that certain non-remarkable moment, serve on their preserver.
They certify credibly that at that time something had happened somewhere. Something happened. Something had to happen because - even if there are no witnesses - there is an evidence.
In these non-remarkable dates the missing time finds its shape for some minutes - hours, years - and becomes maybe transparently visible. And what we shall begin with this grasped moment is up to us.
Time flies away, but the date remains.
