Trying to Let Go of the Past

Trying to Let Go of the Past

I'm in the mood for writing. It won't be anything special, but I was just reminded of someone from long ago by a question that someone else asked, and once again I'm feeling very nostalgic.

The past; how do we let go of it? That quote from Ecclesiastes is of course correct, but it's easier said than done to relinquish memories that are still vivid, especially when one contemplates how a simple decision at some crucial moment in time affected so much that followed.

We can't relive the past, but we can do our best to ensure that from this moment on at least we'll do all we can to make the time we have now as memorable as possible, to spend as much time as we can with those we love while they're still around (and they won't be - sorry), and to do our best with what we've got and leave this place better than it was before we arrived on the scene.

Poekhali! (which means, "Let's Go!" - Yuri Gagarin's last words before he was blasted into space).
