Thoughts - November 15, 2016

“...the past is in us, and not behind us. Things are never over.”
― Tim Winton, The Turning: Stories.
When I read this, I turned around and read it again. I couldn't say it better. I realize there are people who can "put their past behind them", but I am not one of them. The past is in me and has formed who I am today. How does one forget that? Even an ended marriage often lives on in a child. What fine memories of a grandmother's love, the first trip to the ocean or mountains, a young romantic experience. Things are never over. The pearls and the worms and the laughter and the tears wrap themselves around our hearts and come out through our chiseled selves. - Beth Almond Ford
