Thought for today:
‘You get a strange feeling when you’re about to leave a place, I told him, like you’ll not only miss the people you love but you’ll miss the person you are now at this time and this place, because you’ll never be this way ever again.’
— Azar Nafisi

Many times have I quoted the old Greek adage that “the same man cannot cross the same river twice”.
For the river moves constantly as the man is always changing.
We are constantly “leaving a place”, leaving the present to a new future.
Given that we spend our lives doing this, it is sometimes strange that we fear the future.
We can choose how we respond, and we can choose how we engage.
That yearning for the person we used to be, like a comfortable cardigan, gives us comfort.
We can acknowledge it, embrace it even, and let it go.
