Morning Trip (60)

“I think we are well advised to keep on nodding terms with the people we used to be, whether we find them attractive company or not. Otherwise they turn up unannounced and surprise us, come hammering on the mind’s door at 4 a.m. of a bad night and demand to know who deserted them, who betrayed them, who is going to make amends.”
— Joan Didion (Slouching Towards Bethlehem: Essays)

  1. Well, isn’t this an appropos and vital thought! Thinking of all the parts of self we so often betray and stuff away and attempt to murder. Yet, they do keep coming back in varied forms. Yes, I shall take your advice, Joan and Elisa. We might all take this advice.


  2. Yes! And I just want to note that I really dislike regrets, and then I regret doing or not doing, in order to regret having a regret…and it’s usually because of that internal stuffing and shutting off of who and what I was, I am, and who I might become.
