Consumed by nostalgia,
I step out of myself
Into the forest of time.
To collect bits and pieces of memories
A collage of moments
A life well lived so far.
Not totally content,
but I dance to no regrets either.

    Your picture choice–which I totally love–an odd contrast to the simplicity and open peace of your poem. I’m glad you’re not silent, and I think we all need to be thinking about what goes in that collage.

    there is something to be said of no regrets…of intentionality….and in taking the time to stop and gather the memries along the way…
