No living the past, strictly prohibited, if for no other reason than it doesn't exist, never did.

Love ya, Jed.

Hmm... prohibited. Regression=Transgression? Does the present 'exist'? Like right now? What is memory for?

Funny cuz I had 3 "special" photos--yesterday. I tore up 2 of them, but kept 1. I couldn't seem to part with it. The 2 were obviously fake, but the 3rd seemed still 'real' even though it was about 20 years old.

What a life: accumulate, accumulate, you name it, accumulation... then: letting go of, more letting go of, 2 steps forward, 1 step backward... it still does not affect the outcome=nothing.

I'm bewildered.

So the image I "saved" was of a friend who moved out-of-state. Sometimes we text or talk. So after saving that image, we texted concerning an Emily Dickerson poem, "It dropped so low in my regard," a poem I think encompasses everything. Anyway, turns out we are both reading the same book, Being Mortal. So that made this person, for the umpteenth time, appear to be a soul mate. Are there such things, or is it only "a simple twist of faith," or one of Maya's many distracting tricks?

Haha-- Freudian slip: "faith" instead of "fate" -- so therein lies my answer, perhaps?

omg! it's all so entertaining!!

there is no soul, yet we're all mates, corresponding pieces of the big not-a-puzzle.

before i fell into the former forum, a strangerfriend had mentioned the song cath by death cab for cutie. as the story unfolded the boundary between you, kathryn, and this strangerfriend became so blurred i could not absolutely say you were not one and the same. strangely enough, cath's story read so much like mine, but not anymore, now that i've let so much go.

story spins, i couldn't distinguish red from anyone else either, but now i see there never was a red, and i have to admit, i had my doubts all along. the photo of a dumpster with my name on it almost convinced me, but really, in hindsight, it was simply a bin with 'me' scrolled across it, nevermind the mirror in the foreground.

funny the poem you mention though. it reminded me of jed's excercise in holding a stone, the exercise bonegravy so eloquently illustrated. i tried the exercise once and forgot about the rock in my pocket. two years later i tried again with renewed determination and wound up breaking numerous trajectories, culminated in the act of taking the stone from under my tongue and hurling it out the driver-side window of my car. i heard it shatter as i motored on. i don't know what any of this sh!t is for, other than entertainment and letting go.

regression, maybe, is a bending of boundary? and what's really wrong with that? can we not learn (unlearn) from anything?

i don't own this. i don't control this. it's simply what was written through the hands that type and move on  :)
