Leaving little bits / August 2007
I keep thinking of Katherine Mansfield's quote from my last post . . . about leaving little bits of yourself in places you've been. Maybe that's why when you come back from a journey you feel like you're not the same person as when you left. And maybe a journey is a good way to “slough off” pieces of yourself that you don't want or need anymore. A convenient way to rid yourself of annoying thoughts and bad memories. Toss them onto the fences as you pass by, let the wind tear them into tatters, and let yourself be free . . .
