Life Happens

There is something strange that happens to me after a major change in my life.  I get this itch to go out into the world and relive some of my favorite past experiences.  I dream of walking through a gentle rainfall in England, laughing with friends, and walking among massive trees and ancient buildings alike.  I dream of late nights at clubs with music that pumps through your veins, and the surreal sense that life could never be more real than in that moment.  And then, I look around me with a mixture of overwhelming feeling.  That part of my life is over.  And at the same time, new, even better moments are sure to come.

Still, those thoughts seem to combat each other, warring to overwhelm me, to either make me sad, or make me feel pleasantly content.  But to be honest, I sometimes feel sadness begin to win out, that is until I remember I’m a writer.  Then, without fail, the feelings of contentment win, because as every writer knows, nothing can be entirely lost when you can write about it.  You can revisit places you’ve seen and experiences you’ve had, immortalizing them forever through your words.  You can also use those experiences to create completely fantastical experiences, or even make things happen the way you always wanted them to.

So, I guess what I am trying to say is that my life is changing a lot, but my writing makes all these changes just a little bit easier to enjoy without hesitation.

  1. I try to remember the words of Carl Bard…’Although no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.”.

  2. Change is inevitable, and our ability to remember things better than they ever were. as you said, you can recreate those experiences in ways that never would have been possible in life. So go forth and create worlds.

  3. You’re in the deep end of the pool, Dave. Come over to the kiddie side with me. I’ll show you how to make farting sounds with your armpit.

  4. People always say change is good. That is not necessarily true. Still, as you said memories make for great stories and your simply adding new material even when the change is hard. Like we always hear in group, nothing is perfect, if it is, it’s boring. Besides, England isn’t going anywhere, it and a million other places you want to see will be there. As a bonus as your life has changed you will see these places from a completely different perspective.
