I Don’t Give a Flying Duck…..
Memories or Reality
I read a very thought provoking article this morning about “ Memories “did they really exist?
I feel close to my memories of 30 plus years enjoying our hone in Standpoint , Idaho… vivid memories of friends and family filling the cottage with joy, the boating, all the good stuff life offers if you grasp it…. But did it exist?
and yes, strong specific memories of our sailboat “ Tayana “ the gulf islands and northward, the anchorages and glasses of wine on deck as the sun set.. but sometimes …. Yes sometimes I wonder if it existed…
I Love Vancouver Island and our Beach home waiting for us…. It is a place where are yet to be formed …. So memories are still “ Plans” …… But in the present I am disconnected in our Calgary home … The Brain waves are not connected here… It was where we came to “get money” Not building memories but passing time to always be near my medical team so they can continue poking me ……
having spent so much time in the last 10 years in Our little Mexican mountain town of San Miguel De Allende …. The memories are so very vivid….. Likely because of the deep friendships that have been nurtured. … will those fade also as we have spent less time there recently…. Or does Facebook and e mail today keep us more connected to our past by being keeping current and not really allowing memories to form…. How will that look when San Miguel is no longer and I become dependent on memories… will they be there? For now, I sit in limbo only planning the next escape to my “ Memories”
Love Vancouver Island and our Beach home waiting for us…. I think it exists…. But meaningful memories have not yet been formed there.
But I am certainly disconnected in our Calgary home … The brain waves are not connected here… It was where we came to “get money” Not building memories but passing time and recently to always be near my medical team so they can continue poking me. So yes… onward and most importantly…, not to Give a Flying Duck …
