Often I hear of the troubles of many with their shovels digging up old memories from the past to bury themselves with burdens. Sad really-people constantly looking backwards and build on their sorrow. I say wash it away. Look back on lessons learned but make that choice right now to let it go.
I saw this bathtub in an empty room where I work before it was to be repaired/removed. The wear and tear of this old tub reminded me of all that has been washed away down the drain. But hope has remained. Hope of renewal.
If you lose hope, somehow you lose the vitality that keeps life moving, you lose that courage to be, that quality that helps you go on in spite of it all. And so today I still have a dream.
