A suitcase, new snow, and the history lesson


Yeah dude the first snow makes it all new again…….cool……We got our beautiful white blanket this weekend. Cleansing. Clear. Fresh. Cold. Prisitne. Untainted. ……..You can almost HEAR it falling.. Yeah dude. Wonderous………..Dreams of Norman Rockwell indeed. Im with ya……Its nice to have that kind of feeling. That you can start something over. It only seems fair. Ya know?? Like a “do over” in kickball….Its nice to be able to begin again.
Truth be told… I ……..I…. can dish it out but sometimes I .........have to work HARD at taking it. Im not an advocate of armchair warfare its just…. I sometimes can’t seem to practice what I preach. So trust me ……this lesson is for me dude.
Now I can’t take credit here.

Then you love a little wild one
And she brings you only sorrow
All the time you know she's smilin'
You'll be on your knees tomorrow, yeah

Dumper dumpee….cheater cheatee……hehehe….. however it ends you would think there would be something valuable to learn about a breakup. When youre the dumper its always about what was wrong with the other person…….. but think about it….when youre the dumpee…its still about how the other person was at fault… something just doesn’t add up about that. I mean .......It cant always be the OTHER person....…I guess I would be kinda hacked off too if after every break up …...it was the other persons fault. That would make me….jaded…….cautious……protective…….hesitant to let anyone in. Does that sound familiar?? Oh yeah…..I’m carryin baggage today. I’m guilty. I have to make sure my past doesn’t ruin my future. It doesn’t make sense for me to look for love only to stare at it from a distance when it comes a knockin.
Now Im not suggestin you don’t pack your bags or bring your luggage… I mean you can’t very well do without your past. But there is much to learn that I overlook. Do I pick abusers? Do I attract selfish people? Why cant I spot a liar? What is it about ME that might need a fixin? Am I complete by myself? Why am I a sucker for brunettes?? hehehehe ……
Every break up is a chance to start clean. I need to take advantage of that……..new snow is a chance to take the coat out of the baggage and enjoy the view…….Besides I don’t like the idea of stuffing my suitcase full with bitterness or jealousy. Why would I want to carry that around with me? Who would want someone who carries that around? If I need my suitcase I better be bringing something for good you. I like that idea much better. So I best be learnin from my mistakes.How does that quote go? “Those who ignore the lessons of history are doomed to repeat it.” Yeah dude…..History class….FAIL

You go back Jack do it again
Wheel turnin' 'round and 'round
You go back Jack do it again

Bring it………..bring some more snow. It’s a chance to start over. Yeah I can carry my own bags but…….but then what would I hold you with? ….pack light for me will ya? They’re callin for more snow……

Trey I'm very disappointed that you didn't comment on my post titled: For Maria. You really should go back and look. I mean here I am wearing a coat all bundled up for snow. You'll see. :)
I like what you said about the snow falling that you can almost "hear" it. I love that. Living in the country it gets so quiet that you can hear the branches dropping the snow off of them from the weight from far away. It's beautiful and the lake I live on is stunning. Now as far as the fresh start and learning...yes we all hope to learn from our mistakes and not bring our pasts to our new beginnings. But try as we might our past is always there...lurking. At least it is for me. I'm not sure how I will ever forget totatlly what was done to me. But I try...keeping my options open.

The silent peace of snow is almost palpable... no drug can imitate the inner feeling it instills. ::sigh:: ANYway... nope, it isn't always the other person. And if you're honest w/ yourself, it isn't mostly or even frequently the other person. The majority of the time, it's both people and more often than not has to do with communication breakdown and inflexibility. Talk and bend and watch the other person do the same. Mostly. Frequently. Whatever. ;)

The snow DOES feel fresh and new and like starting over... :) It's refreshing.

Well it sucks being in Florida. NO seasons. Do I ever get a "do over"? Or is it just when I "spring clean". CRAP.....I try to keep my past's baggage to "overnight" case size. It will always be there but you CAN lose it easily if you're not paying attention to it.

Trey--You rock!!!! -and- you have the smartest (and cutest) women following you! I love reading their comments!!!
