Topic: Swollen's thoughts on life.
Some reason places always held a distraction for me. Places in my past, In my writing, in my head. Places or and events are what shaped me. The players and activities are but place holders. I know who my first was, did I love her no. do I remember the time and place at a dna level, is it part of who I am today, yes. I don’t mean to depreciate any element or person of this experience we call life I just want to focus. Everything and everyone is just information. Like a picture is information, too broad a spectrum and the image gets hazy.
I can tell you this: growing older or wisdom is unlearning who you are. You spend the first half of your life learning a false structure. A structure we built to deal with things as whole we have trouble with. You spend the next part unlearning who you think you are and coming to realizations of truth of who you really are but only to the amount you are comfortable with.
The less comfortable, you might get a label like conservative. But wherever you fall, politics or otherwise the last part of life (if you’re lucky) is an understanding that renders you unconcerned, you will fart in public and not care.
It isn’t just a loss of faculties. You may have an issue but you also now have an understanding of the universe and now don’t give two shits about it all. Just saying.
