‘memory’s like a train’

Luther Tracks

I took the long way to Dominic’s service yesterday. As I did, I couldn’t help but think that time has become quite greedy as we get older — it seems to take much more than it’s willing to give. The longer we live, the more we lose.┬áSo it’s probably a good idea to appreciate every new experience, friend or gift that comes into our lives.

Foothills Motel

My life has taken me many places, but it always seems to get me exactly where I want/need to be. I have so many amazing people in my life, and I am so happy with where I am today, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t resent time’s┬átransitory nature. I don’t like things being taken away from me.

Carriage Lane

It was an awful accident that brought me back to Auburn. It was a sad day. Dealing with loss in a place where I’d already lost so much might seem like an unbearable situation, but being there, among friends whom I consider family, I felt that once again I was exactly where I needed to be.

Foothills Bowl

It was good to see those people. It was good to drive those roads. It was comforting to feel that old connection.

Taco Tree

Auburn and I have had a long (sometimes destructive) love/hate relationship, but it’s nice to know it’s always there when I need it.

And they all pretend they’re orphans and their memory’s like a train
You can see it getting smaller as it pulls away
And the things you can’t remember tell the things you can’t forget
That history puts a saint in every dream

Oh it’s time time time, and it’s time time time
And it’s time time time that you love
And it’s time time time

– Tom Waits (Time, 1985)
