sometimes that's good. sometimes it's just a fact.
sometimes it's sad. especially when something you cared about, that felt familiar and consistent, isn't or can't be anything more than a memory on which you reflect.
wondering how or why it changed. measuring the distance between the past and the current reality.
but my mom is a wise woman, and i'll reflect on one of her phrases:
live the moment fully, love it joyfully, leave it gratefully...
