PAUSING TO REMEMBER May 08, 2005 4:22 AM
In our mind's eye, we see the past in shades of gray, as if through fog. For most of us most of the time, we don't even see that. The future is a mix of promise and apprehension; the present occupies us with all its imperatives. There is little time to reflect on yesterday.
The mists of time that obscure our view can also darken our lives. They hide where we have been and what has gone before us. We thus can lose any sense of where we fit - even, of who we are.
Sometimes we must pause and look back. Even just a glimpse of the past, a fleeting glance at the path behind us, can help us regain our perspective.
The links below will shine a light behind us, illuminating a few of the things that captured my interest, from the trivial to the profound.
