What Kind of Heart Doesn’t Look Back

January 2, 2017

It is a new year, a little time for reflection and a look toward the future.
I used to shiver, and do still harbor some fear, at the thought of rereading my own words. Curiosity, as is often the case, trumps better judgment and an awkward trip through old thoughts and memories usually ensues.
Occasionally, I am pleasantly surprised that my old words still retain their resonance and I do not have to embarrassingly scurry to the delete key in order to save face. I hope that I can say the same for future words when and/or if they too are revisited.
As for the future, we can not, at the present moment, predict coming events. We can look at the past, try to see parallels to present events and try to stave off the worst possible outcomes. Unfortunately our attention spans are becoming as long as our last tweet and grandiose self interest seems to be the mission of the day. We can only do our best and hope that someone else’s best and well intentioned efforts do not injure us beyond the point of recovery.
