There is this thought that has been troubling me all day (well, all day yesterday since its past midnight). If you think about the concept of forever, there is nothing really forever except what has already happened.
Its poetic to thing about something forever. It feels as if the energy from the anticipation and the unknown makes that feeling unique and special. But is anything really forever, except something, some event, some phase that has already passed? That event and that time/phase is now something that will have happened, forever. And in this sense, that concept of forever doesn’t feel poetic. There is no anticipation and unknown which would make this feeling special.
The other part of this is the nature of that event or time or phase. If it was something good, something favorable, it being forever is not a bad thing. You might even have pictures to cherish. But the bitch (language kiddo) of the fact is that an unfavorable, unfortunate time is now forever too. What are you going to do with the pictures then?
