time travel

Every day of our lives our brains time travel. We go from the past to the present and to the future investigating every corner of possibility along with reliving those moments which haunt, fascinate or delight us about our pasts. We are strange animals that way in that we cannot just sit still and experience the here and now and perhaps that is best. Because it is also a gift to be able to dissect minutes, months or years of our lived experience and learn from them.

Sometimes that can be painful because we may be forced before a mirror to stare at reality in all of its bluntness. However, if we are fortunate, we will come away with nuggets of wisdom after such a naked introspection. Maybe a new light will show us the way to a path we hadn't considered.

What is the expression? Those who do not learn from the past may be doomed to repeat it.
