Thought of the Day: The past is the past…

with one comment

The past is the past, and it will always last as the past. But now I’ve moved on, and the me of today is different than the I of my yesteryears. So while I have no shame of who I was, it is not now who I am. – Jacob J. Walker

Maybe I now understand some of the liner notes that Paul Simon wrote in the Paul Simon Songbook, where he said “there are some I would not write today,” but that they “played a role in the transition”.  In either case, I am feeling ready to let go of some more of who I was, and move to my next “adjacent possible“.
