Today is going to be one of those random ramblings days as I really have no idea what to talk about but here goes....
One thing that's been on my mind is why we tend to revert to old ways of thinking, living or comfortable things?
For instance, reading old, favorite books or wearing old, comfortable pajamas or t-shirts and jeans.
Is it because those items remind us of better days?
Do we find comfort in the past?
I don't know but last night I pulled an old, favored book off my shelf and although I know it intimately, read halfway through then and finished it this morning and was still as touched, as moved as the first time I read it. Tears and smiles as the story unfolded with each turn of the page.
Perhaps I found comfort in knowing the happy ending would still be in place. Or, in the timeless treasure of words woven together to create a story so compelling I read it over and over. And the prayer that my writing does the same for people.
Alas, who knows the real reasons we do these things....reflection, appreciation, love...all good reasons to wander back through our memories. Whether with photos, music or a good book it's important, though we may not want to stay stuck in the past, to occasionally linger there and perhaps, gain a new appreciation for the lessons learned throughout our journey of life.
Something to think about!
