The irony of memory is that it is created from scratch with each recall. Hastily slapped together from sensory recollections. Eventually your memory becomes a mere caricature, a glorified shadow of the real thing. And the greater irony is that you'll never know when that happens.

Even if you sorta-kinda know you might have the thing, it's still a strange feeling when your doc actually diagnoses you of depression. But then it's also a relief. Now you know what you gotta deal with and go about your life. You aren't damaged. You've just made a risk assessment and are now improving your system's mainframe.
You gotta know your demons before you battle them.

What's done is done and has been done for quite a while.
When you don this mantle of creative enterprise your destiny lies in the realm of the 'could be's' and the 'might be's.
That is where you must flow toward and that is where the true battle lies.
Just as your ephemeral muse strums her song to the tune of your imagination,
So should your dreams have an effervescence of the unimaginable that makes you ebb for more.
It is the cost and it is the prize.

Time is a companion that goes with us on a journey. It reminds us to cherish each moment, because it will never come again. What we leave behind is not as important as how we have lived."

A kind of melancholic trance in which you become completely absorbed in vivid sensory details—raindrops skittering down a window, tall trees leaning in the wind, clouds of cream swirling in your coffee—briefly soaking in the experience of being alive, an act that is done purely for its own sake.
