Ichi-go, Ichi-e

Stick a fork in the 365s; I'm done.

It's been a good writing exercise, and an interesting little journey through the faces and places I have known, but I've spent far too much time since my 38th birthday dwelling on the past. A little mental health break is necessary.

I've come up with all sorts of possible remedies... like starting today and going back, for instance, but I'm unable to re-order my chronologically ordered list for some reason. Perhaps I'm just not ready to sum up the people who currently are part of my life in a mere 38 words.

I need to stay focused on the here and now. I shall indulge, not in the past, but in the present.

Ichi-go, Ichi-e = One Moment, Only Once

I had to stop mine, too, Goobmom. I was really enjoying the process. The easiest ones were done first leaving me with all the ones that needed to be treated "delicately". Maybe I will pursue my list to the end and just not publish it.

Thank you for sharing you memories with me. Magoo's Mom

What language is that (the saying)? I like it.

On behalf of your fans everywhere, that is OK with us. Thanks for the heads-up.
