Letting Go

Reflection is great.

Remembering is good.

But all soul searching burdens us with extraneous weight. The images of past loves intermingle with feelings of regret.  The death of a loved one brings forth celebrations of their lives but also carries the haunting fragrance of grief. Lines around our eyes deepen with laughter, yet mock us with Dorian Gray reflections, exclaiming our age.

Our attachments to memories enliven us. Our attachments are also capable of making us feel frail and vulnerable.

Sometimes, letting go helps.
