“Themes to Work With”

– a Euclid’s Flash

 

1. We are not the sole authors of our personal histories.File:Mrs Stannard with boys and baby, Congo, ca. 1900-1915 (IMP-CSCNWW33-OS12-20).jpg

 

2. Coming to the end of a process, but still unsure about two things: what will happen next? and has the process truly ended?

3. Summer Nights. Ponds, Lakes, Rivers and Oceans. Stars. The Size of the Sky.

4. Two very different fabrics of memory: The poetry (and closure) of good memories. The anguish (and continuity) of bad memories. The good seems gone, though sweet. There is almost a scent, a sort of fleeting quality to the good memories – a sense that what was best can never be recovered. With the bad memories, there is a sense that something about them is impossible to escape. Bad memories tell a story about our character – they define us, so ineluctably, and brand us with the hot iron of a pain that still feels fresh within the space of memory.
