Ralph Waldo Emerson

"What lies behind you and what lies in front of you, pales in comparison to what lies inside of you."
That's lovely, and so true. However, I personally don't believe in looking in the rearview mirror. I'm not going that way. I try to improve every day.

T.S. Eliot the waste land

And the dry stone no sound of water. Only
There is shadow under this red rock,
Come in under the shadow of this red rock,
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.
@Lostpoet Just noting how odd it is for me to see T.S Eliot referenced here on SW twice within five minutes (for me)....

It's a dark reference, but full of imagery, meaning, and I hope your shadow makes strides on you to feel better, to not be fearful of the dust... to see(k) something different.

@SW-User That is what I wonder about me as well

@SW-User anger? Joy? Sadness? Or maybe just a list for your next trip to the grocery store!
