Good night, sweet prince: And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest...
-William Shakespeare


It has been said, 'time heals all wounds.' I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone.
-Rose Kennedy

A thought...sort of...

Wendell Berry said, "The past is our definition. We may strive with good reason to escape it, or to escape what is bad in it. But we will escape it only by adding something better to it."

My truth is I don't want to escape my past. I do however want to add something better to my life.

Tell me do you want to escape your past?

Yes and no. I mean yes, I want Hannah back, but no because our past is what makes us into the people we are today. And while I am not happy with the circumstances of how I got here, I can't imagine being any other person right now.

I think CLC hit the nail right on the head.

No. Somehow I've come to embrace it. I know that sounds really odd and mostly impossible and there are days when I feel like I'm just lying to everyone - myself included. But, I am who I am and that is because of her.
