Scintillating fiction, poetry, and commentary...snort it up your snout!
There are things you only do once... they say that only fools do the same thing twice expecting different results.
Often we do the same things expecting the SAME results, and that's why we keep doing it!
I'm picturing the reading back. Somebody wrote it down?!
I'd like to think not, but if they did they got their money's worth--lol
I think my subconcious is doing my life review right now. I keep remembering unawakened things i did and said and can frequently be heard hissing at myself: "stupid! Stupid! Stupid!" Doing a life review at the end will be over kill, and i rather dread it, lol.
We're on the same wavelength with that, Sherry!
Einstein said that insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. You mos def are not insane. Things we have done in our past. The ending of this is excellent.
Thank you, Toni. Doing them the first time in the flesh is one thing, but reliving them in your mind can be a never ending punishment.
'L'enfer c'est les autres" JP SartreA lot of folk who have had "interesting" lives have experienced hell here already... so I'm expecting that with the new found grace humility and contrition that comes with ageing you'll end up with a halo, wings and a harp:)
Best wishes to you too! (I'll start taking harp lessons)
Thoughts of all one's past mistakes stuck on repeat sounds like a special sort of hell indeed. But at least there's some comfort in knowing that lessons have been learned, and (hopefully) those mistakes won't be repeated.
Life is like the film Groundhog Day...each day we have another chance to do better and eventually get it right.
I'd rather not have a life review. It would be better to just move on with a clean slate
Sure would. All we gotta do is figure out how to go back and clean up that slate from yesterday.
Yes, life is like Groundhog Day, learning from our mistakes and hopefully making things right again. I hope so...Anna :o]
Life is like the marathon runner who knows he's hopelessly behind because he was too slow at the beginning, but he'll fight through the wind and the rain and the stray dogs nipping at his heels because he'll take some solace in just finishing the race.
Many happy weekly returns at da thursday poetry club challenge thing, friend Tim. cat.

For some damn reason, links don't work on this page.
"I'll wait to have all thatread back to meat the gatesof either heavenor hell"THIS. Absolutely this. I don't have time to wallow in that now.
Exactly. What's done is done, and the cat licked up that spilled milk a long time ago.
Yep...once is enough!!
Thanks, Your Grace!
Once is definitely enough - enjoyed your writing!
Nice to know, Jo!
This is a state of mind with which I'm familiar. You're doing the only thing, writing it down yourself - in poetry, short stories, whatever works for you. It puts you in charge rather than the guys at the gates of heaven and hell!
Nicely stated, Kim!
Good point about have been some places once is enough for a lifetime.
Nietzsche had this crazy notion that we go back and live the same lifetime over again. I sure hope it's a crazy notion, anyhow.
Some moments are best closed up and locked. We always hope to move forward, and really, what is the choice?
You put your pinkie right on it, Sara...what is the choice??? Thanks!
I've no need to reliveevery misdeedor stupid mistakeDo it once and learn by it certainly!Hank
And just keep slogging through. There is nobility in that.
