The Return

The second time in my life I ventured into the city that at many points in history was the capitol of 25% of the planet, including what would become Mississippi. I walked among its beautiful streets, mingled with its inhabitants… and forgot about everything that would be waiting for me when I returned. I allowed myself to get lost, and to forget the sins of the past.



You see I went to London for a second chance, a chance to erase some of the feelings from long ago. I needed it for me, and the catharsis that I received from being there was a perfect experience. It allowed me to shed the cloud that followed me and to move on… to something new.

It is nice to be able to live old memories again.

Cool composition! Glad, too, that you were able to come to terms with some things (sins?) of the past...those damn "sins" will eat you up if you let 'em.

I'm trying to live in the "now." The past is gone and irrelevant and the future is unknown. All we've got is the "now."

Nice to hear from you again!

While I do agree that the past is gone, I understand the relevance and power we can allow it to maintain. Walking through it differently to create a different experience....to let go and to move forward--was a wise call for me.
Apparently a wise (one for you as well.

Welcome to a new day....and a freed spirit.
